Название: The Chiral Potts Model and Its Associated Link Invariant
Авторы: Wu F.Y., Pant P.
A new link invariant is derived using the exactly solvable chiral Potts model and a generalized Gaussian summation identity. Starting from a general formulation of link invariants using edge-interaction spin models, we establish the uniqueness of the invariant for self-dual models. We next apply the formulation to the self-dual chiral Potts model, and obtain a link invariant in the form of a lattice sum defined by a matrix associated with the link diagram. A generalized Gaussian summation identity is then used to carry out this lattice sum, enabling us to cast the invariant into a tractable form. The resulting expression for the link invariant is characterized by roots of unity and does not appear to belong to the usual quantum group family of invariants. A table of invariants for links with up to eight crossings is given.
