We study the chromatic polynomial PG(q) for m× n square- and triangular-lattice strips of widths 2≤ m ≤ 8 with cyclic boundary conditions. This polynomial gives the zero-temperature limit of the partition function for the antiferromagnetic q-state Potts model defined on the lattice G. We show how to construct the transfer matrix in the Fortuin–Kasteleyn representation for such lattices and obtain the accumulation sets of chromatic zeros in the complex q-plane in the limit n→∞. We find that the… CONTINUE READING
