New collective modes of interaction nature in inhomogeneous Ising networks

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We propose a vertex formulation of the Ising model with inhomogeneous external field on multiconnected networks possessing a superbond structure. The related technique based on gauge degrees of freedom enables us to recognize new collective modes of interaction nature, which provide an exact solution of the inverse profile problem and an explicit form of a local free-energy functional on an extended magnetization-mode space. Application is made to a square strip.
