Abstract:
Exact computations of the correlation function is one of the most
important subject of the theory of the quantum integrable models. An
approach based on the calculation of form factors, i.e. matrix elements
of the local spin operators, has been shown to be a more effective one.
In this talk I will discuss a method based on algebraic Bethe ansatz for
computing form factors of quantum spin chains in thermodynamic limit. We
will consider the XXX model, which is one of the most simplest examples
of quantum spin chain yet an interesting one as it belongs to the
critical regime. For a particular case of form factors for excitations
given by two spinons, we obtain an exact result in a closedform using
this method and find that it agrees with the previous result based on
𝑞vertex operator algebra method. Generically however, excitations of
the XXX ground state will also contain spinon bound states that are
described by complex solutions of the Bethe equations. I will further
elaborate on how this method can be generalized for such cases, leading
to the determinant formulae for the thermodynamic form factors of any
generic lowlying excitation, expressed in terms of the determinants of
finite size.
