We present a novel real-space renormalization group (RG) for the one-dimensional XXZ model in the critical regime, reconsidering the role of the cutoff parameter in Wilson's RG for the Kondo impurity problem. We then demonstrate the RG calculation for the XXZ chain with the free boundary. Comparing the hierarchical structure of the obtained low-energy spectrum with the Bethe ansatz result, we find that the proper scaling dimension is reproduced as a fixed point of the RG transformation.

Hyperbolic Deformation on Quantum Lattice Hamiltonians

A group of non-uniform quantum lattice Hamiltonians in one dimension is introduced, which is related to the hyperbolic (1 + 1)-dimensional space. The Hamiltonians contain only nearest neighbor

Hyperbolic Deformation Applied to S = 1 Spin Chains - Scaling Relation in Excitation Energy -

We investigate excitation energies of hyperbolically deformed S = 1 spin chains, which are specified by the local energy scale f_j^{~} = \cosh j \lambda, where j is the lattice index and \lambda is

Sine-square deformation and supersymmetric quantum mechanics

We investigate the sine-square deformation (SSD) of free fermions in one-dimensional continuous space. On the basis of supersymmetric quantum mechanics, we prove the correspondence between the

Finite-size corrections in the XY model with a uniform magnetic field and a boundary field

The one-dimensional XY model with a uniform magnetic field and a boundary field is introduced. The present model is solved analytically at its critical point. Using the present analytical result, the

Density‐matrix spectra for integrable models

The spectra which occur in numerical density‐matrix renormalization group (DMRG) calculations for quantum chains can be obtained analytically for integrable models via corner transfer matrices. This

Exact equivalences between the critical quantum Potts and Ashkin-Teller chains and a modified XXZ Heisenberg chain have recently been derived by Alcaraz et al (1987). The leading finite-size
