If two neighboring spins i and j are in the same orientation, then they contribute an amount $-J$ to the total energy of a configuration. 14 The Potts model is also related to, and generalized by, several other models, such as the XY model, 15 the Heisenberg model 16 and the N-vector model. î‡˙(Soyzi, 1972) I q 3ž ,ˆØJ> 0‰J< Ñ÷v-c ^. The Potts model is extended to include the case of block type many-body interaction. In a Monte Carlo Potts model, a microstructure is discretized using a regular grid (Potts, 1952; Wu, 1982). The exactly solved Baxter-Wu model  precisely ﬁts such a location in parameter space: it belongs to the 4-state Potts class and its If q = 2, the Potts model is reduced to the Ising model. 17 Generalizations of the Potts model have been used to model grain growth in metals and coarsening in foams. One assumes that each spin i can be in one of Q possible discrete orientations $\chi_i$ $(\chi_i =,1,2,\ldots,Q)$. Each grid point is labeled by an integer number representing the orientation of a grain. )~Og(q-l) [J1 + (M - 1)h] .

It also shows that the 4-state Potts behavior without logarithmic factors can only occur at special points in the parameter space, where the two leading temperature ﬁelds simultaneously vanish. The first of these is the Q-state Potts model (Potts, 1952; Wu, 1982). ⁄ › ÑJ>0ÚJ<0ü⁄…C: Percolation and the Potts model Wu, F. Y. Abstract. The Kasteleyn-Fortuin formulation of bond percolation as a lattice statistical model is rederived using an alternate approach. The method extends previously known results, by allowing the consideration of the correlation function for arbitrarily placed vertices on the graph. We introduce a new method to generate duality relations for correlation functions of the Potts model on a planar graph. Abstract. From standard mean field theory for the Potts model (Wu, 1982) it is possible to show that the transition from the ferromagnetic phase to the paramagnetic phase is at Tc = 2M (qJ.
