N-color Ashkin-Teller model


shows nonuniversal critical behavior in two dimensions in the neighborhood of K4 =0. To see if this behavior persists for N & 2 we perform a first-order-perturbation expansion around the decoupling point in two dimensions. As an aid in interpreting the results of this perturbation expansion we have determined the phase diagram of the system through mean… (More)
