Exact expressions for row correlation functions in the isotropicd=2 ising model

  • Ranjan K. Ghosh
  • Robert E. Shrock


We present exact explicit expressions for the row spin-spin correlation functions 〈σ00σn0〉 in the isotropicd= 2 Ising model, in terms of elliptic integrals, forn⩽ 5. We also give a general structural formula for 〈σ00σn0〉.

Key words

Ising model solvable models correlation functions series expansions
