We show the positivity or negativity of truncated correlation functions in the quantum XY model with spin 1/2 (at any temperature) and spin 1 (in the ground state). These Griffiths–Ginibre inequalities of the second kind generalise an earlier result of Gallavotti. 
Correlation inequalities for classical and quantum XY models
We review correlation inequalities of truncated functions for the classical and quantum XY models. A consequence is that the critical temperature of the XY model is necessarily smaller than that of
Correlation inequalities for Schr\"odinger operators
This paper analyzes Schodinger operators from viewpoint of correlation inequalities. We construct Griffiths inequalities for the ground state expectations by applying operator-theoretic correlation
Griffiths inequalities for the $O(N)$-spin model
We prove Griffiths inequalities for the O ( N )-spin model with inhomogeneous coupling constants and external magnetic field for any N ≥ 2.
Correlation Inequalities for Schrödinger Operators
The purpose of the present paper is to analyze correlation structures of the ground states of the Schrödinger operator. We construct Griffiths inequalities for the ground state expectations by
Correlation inequalities for the uniform 8-vertex model and the toric code model
We elucidate connections between four models in statistical physics and probability theory: (1) the toric code model of Kitaev, (2) the uniform eight-vertex model, (3) random walk on a hypercube, and
Phase transition for loop representations of quantum spin systems on trees
We consider a model of random loops on Galton-Watson trees with an offspring distribution with high expectation. We give the configurations a weighting of $\theta^{\#\text{loops}}$. For many
Many-Body Quantum Systems and Effective Theories
In the last years, substantial progress has been made in many areas of mathematical physics. The goal of this workshop was to bring together researchers working on analytic and probabilistic aspects


Inequalities for some classical spin vector models
Inequalities are derived for a class of lattice systems including classical anisotropic X-Y and Heisenberg ferromagnets. Inequalities relating different models are also established and points out
Some Properties of Correlations of Quantum Lattice Systems in Thermal Equilibrium
Simple proofs of uniqueness of the thermodynamic limit of KMS states and of the decay of equilibrium correlations are presented for a large class of quantum lattice systems at high temperatures. New
A Stochastic Geometric Approach to Quantum Spin Systems
We review some stochastic geometric models that arise from the study of certain quantum spin systems. In these models the fundamental properties of the ground states or equilibrium states of the
General formulation of Griffiths' inequalities
We present a general framework in which Griffiths inequalities on the correlations of ferromagnetic spin systems appear as natural consequences of general assumptions. We give a method for the
Correlations in Ising Ferromagnets. I
An inequality relating binary correlation functions for an Ising model with purely ferromagnetic interactions is derived by elementary arguments and used to show that such a ferromagnet cannot
A Proof of the Griffiths Inequalities for the X‐Y Model
The idea involved in the proof of (1.3),(1.4) is simply to reduce these inequalities to the classical Griffiths inequalities, [2], by using the technique in Ref. [1] to prove (1.2) and in Ref.
