Homework Statement


Consider the network of spins shown below. The Hamiltonian is given by $$H = - \sum_{\langle i j k \rangle} [J \sigma_i \sigma_j \sigma_k + J_0]$$ with ##J,J_o \geq 0## and ##\langle i j k \rangle## denoting spin in the same triangle (the triangles under consideration are each highlighted by a looping arrow). Decimate over the crosses and find a recursion relation for the renormalised coupling ##J'##.

The Attempt at a Solution


[/B]
I was going to proceed by the method of transfer matrix but then I am not sure what size my matrix would be in this case. The bond action is $$e^{w(\sigma, \sigma' \sigma'')} = e^{J_o} e^{J \sigma \sigma' \sigma''}$$ and I want to find a new (renormalised) bond action $$e^{w'(\mu \mu' \mu'')} = e^{J_o'} e^{J' \mu \mu' \mu''}$$

I think $$e^{w'(\mu \mu' \mu'')} = \sum_{\sigma \sigma' \sigma''} = e^{\mu \sigma \sigma'} e^{\sigma' \mu'' \sigma''} e^{\sigma'' \sigma \mu'}$$ if I understood the set up correctly. I would proceed by writing down the matrix representation of these quantities but I am not sure what size to make them. There are ##2 \times 2 \times 2## possible combinations of spins.

Thanks for any tips!
