Abstract

The internal energy density of the Potts model on a semi-infinite strip with a width L has been conjectured to have no finite-size corrections at the critical point K = Kc. By factorizing the transfer matrix for the kagome lattice with larger widths, we have found that this conjecture is not correct in that the internal energy density varies slightly with L at the critical point. From this size dependence of the internal energy density, we obtain an upper bound as Kc < 1.0565615, which is close to a recent estimate KcJS = 1.0565600(7) by Jacobsen and Scullard [J. Phys. A 45, 494003 (2012)]. We also obtain a lower bound as Kc > 1.0560 by calculating the correlation length along the strips.
