1208.5005 (Heinz-Jürgen Schmidt)

The general spin triangle    [PDF]

Heinz-Jürgen Schmidt
We consider the Heisenberg spin triangle with general coupling coefficients and general spin quantum number $s$. The corresponding classical system is completely integrable. In the quantum case the eigenvalue problem can be reduced to that of tridiagonal matrices in at most $2s+1$ dimensions. The corresponding energy spectrum exhibits what we will call spectral symmetries due to the underlying permutational symmetry of the considered class of Hamiltonians. As an application we explicitly calculate four classes of universal polynomials that occur in the high temperature expansion of spin triangles and more general spin systems. Aspects of quantum integrability are also discussed in this context.
