    ABSTRACT: ABSTRACT: We revisit an order-six linear differential operator having a solution which is a diagonal of a rational function of three variables. Its exterior square has a rational solution, indicating that it has a selected differential Galois group, and is actually homomorphic to its adjoint. We obtain the two corresponding intertwiners giving this homomorphism to the adjoint. We show that these intertwiners are also homomorphic to their adjoint and have a simple decomposition, already underlined in a previous paper, in terms of order-two self-adjoint operators. From these results, we deduce a new form of decomposition of operators for this selected order-six linear differential operator in terms of three order-two self-adjoint operators. We then generalize the previous decomposition to decompositions in terms of an arbitrary number of self-adjoint operators of the same parity order. This yields an infinite family of linear differential operators homomorphic to their adjoint, and, thus, with a selected differential Galois group. We show that the equivalence of such operators is compatible with these canonical decompositions. The rational solutions of the symmetric, or exterior, squares of these selected operators are, noticeably, seen to depend only on the rightmost self-adjoint operator in the decomposition. These results, and tools, are applied on operators of large orders. For instance, it is seen that a large set of (quite massive) operators, associated with reflexive 4-polytopes defining Calabi-Yau 3-folds, obtained recently by P. Lairez, correspond to a particular form of the decomposition detailed in this paper.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper we compare the integrable hard hexagon model with the non-integrable hard squares model by means of partition function roots and transfer matrix eigenvalues. We consider partition functions for toroidal, cylindrical, and free-free boundary conditions up to sizes $40\times40$ and transfer matrices up to 30 sites. For all boundary conditions the hard squares roots are seen to lie in a bounded area of the complex fugacity plane along with the universal hard core line segment on the negative real fugacity axis. The density of roots on this line segment matches the derivative of the phase difference between the eigenvalues of largest (and equal) moduli and exhibits much greater structure than the corresponding density of hard hexagons. We also study the special point $z=-1$ of hard squares where all eigenvalues have unit modulus, and we give several conjectures for the value at $z=-1$ of the partition functions.

    ABSTRACT: We study the analyticity of the partition function of the hard hexagon model in the complex fugacity plane by computing zeros and transfer matrix eigenvalues for large finite size systems. We find that the partition function per site computed by Baxter in the thermodynamic limit for positive real values of the fugacity is not sufficient to describe the analyticity in the full complex fugacity plane. We also obtain a new algebraic equation for the low density partition function per site.

    ABSTRACT: We give the exact expressions of the partial susceptibilities $\chi^{(3)}_d$ and $\chi^{(4)}_d$ for the diagonal susceptibility of the Ising model in terms of modular forms and Calabi-Yau ODEs, and more specifically, $_3F_2([1/3,2/3,3/2],\, [1,1];\, z)$ and $_4F_3([1/2,1/2,1/2,1/2],\, [1,1,1]; \, z)$ hypergeometric functions. By solving the connection problems we analytically compute the behavior at all finite singular points for $\chi^{(3)}_d$ and $\chi^{(4)}_d$. We also give new results for $\chi^{(5)}_d$. We see in particular, the emergence of a remarkable order-six operator, which is such that its symmetric square has a rational solution. These new exact results indicate that the linear differential operators occurring in the $n$-fold integrals of the Ising model are not only "Derived from Geometry" (globally nilpotent), but actually correspond to "Special Geometry" (homomorphic to their formal adjoint). This raises the question of seeing if these "special geometry" Ising-operators, are "special" ones, reducing, in fact systematically, to (selected, k-balanced, ...) $_{q+1}F_q$ hypergeometric functions, or correspond to the more general solutions of Calabi-Yau equations.

    ABSTRACT: We present a general method for analytically factorizing the n-fold form factor integrals $f^{(n)}_{N,N}(t)$ for the correlation functions of the Ising model on the diagonal in terms of the hypergeometric functions $_2F_1([1/2,N+1/2];[N+1];t)$ which appear in the form factor $f^{(1)}_{N,N}(t)$. New quadratic recursion and quartic identities are obtained for the form factors for n=2,3. For n= 2,3,4 explicit results are given for the form factors. These factorizations are proved for all N for n= 2,3. These results yield the emergence of palindromic polynomials canonically associated with elliptic curves. As a consequence, understanding the form factors amounts to describing and understanding an infinite set of palindromic polynomials, canonically associated with elliptic curves. From an analytical viewpoint the relation of these palindromic polynomials with hypergeometric functions associated with elliptic curves is made very explicitly, and from a differential algebra viewpoint this corresponds to the emergence of direct sums of differential operators homomorphic to symmetric powers of a second order operator associated with elliptic curve.

    ABSTRACT: We compute the energy density at arbitrary temperature of the half plane Ising lattice with a boundary magnetic field $H_b$ at a distance $M$ rows from the boundary and compare limiting cases of the exact expression with recent calculations at $T=T_c$ done by means of discrete complex analysis methods.

    ABSTRACT: We review developments made since 1959 in the search for a closed form for the susceptibility of the Ising model. The expressions for the form factors in terms of the nome $q$ and the modulus $k$ are compared and contrasted. The $\lambda$ generalized correlations $C(M,N;\lambda)$ are defined and explicitly computed in terms of theta functions for $M=N=0,1$. Comment: 19 pages, 1 figure
