Susceptibility of the rectangular Ising ferromagnet

  • D. B. Abraham


The critical index valuesγ= 7/4 for the susceptibility andδ=15 for the critical isotherm are derived rigorously for the rectangular Ising ferromagnet with nearest neighbor interactions. The critical indices associated with the Fisher moment definition of the correlation length are obtained asTTc+. The index of the fluctuation sum definition of critical correlations is obtained.
