# The Baxter Q operator of critical dense polymers

@article{Nigro2009TheBQ, title={The Baxter Q operator of critical dense polymers}, author={Alessandro Nigro}, journal={Journal of Statistical Mechanics: Theory and Experiment}, year={2009}, volume={2009}, pages={P10008} }

We consider critical dense polymers , corresponding to a logarithmic conformal field theory with central charge c = −2. An elegant decomposition of the Baxter Q operator is obtained in terms of a finite number of lattice integrals of motion. All local, nonlocal and dual nonlocal involutive charges are introduced directly on the lattice and their continuum limit is found to agree with the expressions predicted by conformal field theory. A highly nontrivial operator Ψ(ν) is introduced on the…
