Eigenvectors of open Bazhanov-Stroganov quantum chain. (English) Zbl 1105.82007
The Bazhanov-Stroganov quantum chain is considered, which can be reformulated as Baxter’s inverse SOS model, and covers the chiral Potts model and the relativistic Toda chain. Using an iterative procedure, adding one particle at a time, it is shown how eigenvectors and eigenvalues of the generating polynomial \(A_n(\lambda)\), the upper left entry of the monodromy matrix, can be obtained. The result is given using a special function attached to the Fermat curve \(x^N+y^N=1\), a root of unity analogue of the \(\Gamma_q\)-function.
