## Fundamental relation (1.16) was introduced by Baxter

The YangBaxter relation is a far going generalization of the Onsager's famous star-triangle relation. Parametrization (1.22) of Boltzmann weights was extremely important for Baxter's approach. The role of equation (1.23) in statistical mechanics was manifested by BaxterCrossRefGoogle Scholar

## Exposition in lecture V follows the paper [21], where an extensive list of references was given. Here we notice only that assumptions a) and b) were actually used by Bethe in [8]. The dynamical picture for the case of spins Swas presented in [18]. In this case the proof of an analog of completeness relation (5.21) requires more complicated combinatorics. This. proof was given by Kirillov

- 25.A.N.Kirillov. Combinatoric identities and the completeness of Bethe multiplets for the Heisenberg model.-LOMI Proceedings, 1983, v.131, p.88–105 (in Russian). The counting of Bethe states is very important when one has antiferromagnetic case. Thus in [20–21] it was shown that a spin wave-kink has spin 1/2 rather then 1 which was generally assumed to be true. It should be emphasized that the string hypothesis is literally true only whenN → ∞andis fixed. However in the anti ferromagnetic case we have l ≈ N/2, so the string hypothesis for such l needs verification. In the paperGoogle Scholar
- 26.C.Destry, J.H.Lowenstein. Analysis of the Bethe ansatz equations of the chiral-invariant Gross-Neveu model.-Nucl.Phys. v.B205, N 3, p.369–385 in was shown that in the absense of external magnetic field (H=0) and at zero temperature (T = 0) the string hypothesis literally is not true: complex solutions of the system (5.6) do not combine into a strings. By they do combine into a strings if H > 0 or T > 0 So in lecture V the following “regularization” is assumed: introduce a small magnetic fieldH ≪ 1, which permits to write down the system (5.12), and then set H → 0Google Scholar
