Corner transfer matrix study of an inhomogeneous Ising model

Authors


Abstract

We consider a planar Ising model with an extended defect described by couplings of the form K(r) = K·(1 + A/r). We determine the spectrum of the corner transfer matrix numerically and analytically and use it to calculate the local magnetization at the defect and the corresponding, non-universal critical exponent.
