  author={Roman Kotecḱy and David Preiss},
  journal={Communications in Mathematical Physics},
A new direct proof of convergence of cluster expansions for polymer (contour) models is given in an abstract setting. It does not rely on Kirkwood-Salsburg type equations or “combinatorics of trees.” A distinctive feature is that, at all steps, the considered clusters contain every polymer at most once. 
Cluster Expansion for Abstract Polymer Models. New Bounds from an Old Approach
We revisit the classical approach to cluster expansions, based on tree graphs, and establish a new convergence condition that improves those by Kotecký-Preiss and Dobrushin, as we show in someExpand
Abstract Polymer Models with General Pair Interactions
Abstract A convergence criterion of cluster expansion is presented in the case of an abstract polymer system with general pair interactions (i.e. not necessarily hard core or repulsive). As aExpand
A Simple Inductive Approach to the Problem of Convergence of Cluster Expansions of Polymer Models
We explain a simple inductive method for the analysis of the convergence of cluster expansions (Taylor expansions, Mayer expansions) for the partition functions of polymer models. We give a veryExpand
Cluster expansions and correlation functions
A cluster expansion is proposed, that applies to both continuous and discrete systems. The assumption for its convergence involves an extension of the neat Kotecky-Preiss criterion. Expressions andExpand
A Convergence Proof for Linked Cluster Expansions
We prove that for a general $N$-component model on a $d$-dimensional lattice $\bZ^d$ with pairwise nearest-neighbor coupling and general local interaction obeying a stability bound the linked clusterExpand

Interfaces for Random Cluster Models
AbstractA random cluster measure on $$\mathbb{Z}^d $$ that is not translationally invariant is constructed for d≥3, the critical density pc, and sufficiently large q. The resulting measure isExpand

In unbounded spin systems at high temperature with two-body potential we prove, using the associated polymer model, that the two-point truncated correlation function decays exponentiallyExpand

Some years ago the interesting proposal has been made by Wilson [29] and others of performing the Yang-Mills [31] procedure of promoting a global symmetry in a relativistic quantum field theory to aExpand
