Nonuniform Effective Temperatures in Ising Models on Tangled Chains
Physics and Astronomy
Mathematics and Natural Sciences
Exact solutions are presented for the partition function of a tangled Ising chain in a magnetic field. The tangled geometry introduces additional bonds at knots that couple otherwise distant pairs of spins across (not along) the chain. These additional bonds are introduced as a form of perfectly correlated disorder, and then their effects on the spin correlation are studied.
