Functionally independent conservations laws in a quantum integrable

Haile Owusu, B. Sriram Shastry
We study a recently proposed quantum integrable model defined on a lattice with N sites, with Fermions or Bosons populating each site, as a close relative of the well known spin-1/2 Gaudin model. This model has 2N arbitrary parameters, a linear dependence on an interaction type parameter x, and can be solved exactly. It has N known constants of motion that are linear in x. We display further constants of motion with higher Fermion content, that are are linearly independent of the known conservation laws. Our main result is that despite the existence of these higher conservation laws, the model has only N functionally independent conservation laws. Therefore we propose that N can be viewed as the number of degrees of freedom, in parallel to the classical definition of integrability.
