Correlation inequalities for the uniform 8-vertex model and the toric code model

  title={Correlation inequalities for the uniform 8-vertex model and the toric code model},
  author={Jakob E. Bjornberg and Benjamin Lees},
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 (4) a classical Ising model with four-body interaction. As a consequence of our analysis (and of the GKS-inequalities for the Ising model) we obtain correlation inequalities for the toric code model and the uniform eight-vertex model.

On the six-vertex model's free energy

In this paper, we provide new proofs of the existence and the condensation of Bethe roots for the Bethe Ansatz equation associated with the six-vertex model with periodic boundary conditions and an

Correlation Inequalities for the Quantum XY Model

It is shown that 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) are positive or negative.

General Lattice Model of Phase Transitions

A general lattice-statistical model which includes all soluble two-dimensional model of phase transitions is proposed. Besides the well-known Ising and "ice" models, other soluble cases are also

Delocalization of the height function of the six-vertex model

We show that the height function of the six-vertex model, in the parameter range a = b = 1 and c ≥ 1, is delocalized with logarithmic variance when c ≤ 2. This complements the earlier proven

A statistical mechanics view on Kitaev's proposal for quantum memories

We compute rigorously the ground and equilibrium states for Kitaev's model in 2D, both the finite and infinite versions, using an analogy with the 1D Ising ferromagnet. Next, we investigate the

Numerical study of the 6-vertex model with domain wall boundary conditions

A Markov process is constructed to numerically study the phase separation in the 6-vertex model with domain wall boundary conditions. It is a random walk on the graph where vertices are states and

Exact Solution of the F Model of An Antiferroelectric

The F model, which was originally proposed by Rys1 as an interesting statistical mechanics problem, has since2 become a meaningful model of hydrogen bonded ferroelectrics (e.g., NH4H2PO4), at least

On the transition between the disordered and antiferroelectric phases of the 6-vertex model.

The symmetric six-vertex model with parameters $a,b,c>0$ is expected to exhibit different behavior in the regimes $a+b c$ (ferroelectric). In this work, we study the way in which the transition

Exact Solution of the Two-Dimensional Slater KDP Model of a Ferroelectric

The Slater KDP model is solved for all temperatures and with an electric field. Above Tc the specific heat behaves lik (T−T c )−1/2 and the polarizability like (T−T c )−1. There is first-order phase
