Geometry, thermodynamics, and finite-size corrections in the critical Potts model.

Abstract

We establish an intriguing connection between geometry and thermodynamics in the critical q-state Potts model on two-dimensional lattices, using the q-state bond-correlated percolation model (QBCPM) representation. We find that the number of clusters <N(c)> of the QBCPM has an energy-like singularity for q not equal to 1, which is reached and supported by… (More)
