On the decay of correlations inSO(n)-symmetric ferromagnets

  • Oliver A. McBryan
  • Thomas Spencer


We prove that for low temperaturesT the spin-spin correlation function of the two-dimensional classicalSO(n)-symmetric Ising ferromagnet decays faster than |x|−constT providedn≧2. We also discuss a nearest neighbor continuous spin model, with spins restricted to a finite interval, where we show that the spin-spin correlation function decays exponentially in any number of dimensions.
