Since it was first discussed by Baxter in 1970, the three coloring model has been studied in several contexts, from frustrated magnetism to superconducting devices and glassiness. In presence of interactions, when the model is no longer exactly soluble, it was already observed that the phase diagram is highly non-trivial. Here we discuss the generic case of `color-dependent' nearest-neighbor interactions between the vertex chiralities. We uncover different critical regimes merging into one… 



Quantum criticality, lines of fixed points, and phase separation in doped two-dimensional quantum dimer models

We study phase diagrams of a class of doped quantum dimer models on the square lattice with ground-state wave functions whose amplitudes have the form of the Gibbs weights of a classical doped dimer

Dynamical obstruction in a constrained system and its realization in lattices of superconducting devices

Hard constraints imposed in statistical mechanics models can lead to interesting thermodynamical behaviors, but may at the same time raise obstructions in the thoroughfare to thermal equilibration.

Classical dimers with aligning interactions on the square lattice.

A detailed study of a model of close-packed dimers on the square lattice with an interaction between nearest-neighbor dimers, resulting in a low-temperature crystalline phase and analytic results relevant to the noninteracting case of dimer coverings, including a Bethe ansatz analysis.

High-temperature criticality in strongly constrained quantum systems

The exotic nature of many strongly correlated materials at reasonably high temperatures---for instance, cuprate superconductors in their normal state---has led to the suggestion that such behavior

Fully packed loop model on the honeycomb lattice.

The O(n) model on the honeycomb lattice is investigated, using its loop representation in the limit of full packing, and is characterized as a superposition of a low-temperature O( n) phase, and a solid-on-solid model at a temperature independent of n.

Classical antiferromagnets on the Kagomé lattice.

It is argued that the Heisenberg model has long-range antiferromagnetic order in the limit T 0, and the system appears to remain disordered for T 0.

Universal Term in the Free Energy at a Critical Point and the Conformal Anomaly

We show that the leading finite-size correction to lnZ for a two-dimensional system at a conformally invariant critical point on a strip of length L, width β (β L ), is (π/6) c ( L /β), where c is
