On partition functions for 3-graphs

UvA-DARE (Digital Academic Repository) On partition functions for 3-graphs

. A cyclic graph is a graph with at each vertex a cyclic order of the edges incident with it specified. We characterize which real-valued functions on the collection of cubic cyclic graphs are



Algebra of 3-graphs

We introduce and study the structure of an algebra in the linear space spanned by all regular 3-valent graphs with a prescribed order of edges at every vertex, modulo certain relations. The role of

Algebraic structures on modules of diagrams

Reflection positivity, rank connectivity, and homomorphism of graphs

It is shown that a graph parameter can be realized as the number of homomorphisms into a fixed (weighted) graph if and only if it satisfies two linear algebraic conditions: reflection positivity and

Chern-Simons perturbation theory. II

We study the perturbation theory for three dimensional Chern--Simons quantum field theory on a general compact three manifold without boundary. We show that after a simple change of variables, the

Perturbative Aspects of the Chern-Simons Topological Quantum Field Theory

We investigate the Feynman-diagram perturbative expansion of the Chem-Simons topological quantum field theory. After introducing the theory, we compute the one-loop expectation value for knots and

Abstract From the tensorial point of view, the essential characteristic of a semisimple lie algebra A is the non-singularity of the Killing form, since this enables one to construct a system of

Graph Invariants Related to Statistical Mechanical Models: Examples and Problems

Abstract Spin models and vertex models on graphs are defined as appropriate generalizations of the Ising-Potts model of statistical mechanics. We review some of these state models and the graph
