Corner transfer matrices and Lorentz invariance on a lattice. (English) Zbl 0596.58050
Summary: The continuum limit of the Baxter eight-vertex lattice model is the Lorentz invariant massive Thirring/sine-Gordon field theory. Here it is shown that the Baxter model exhibits a continuous symmetry which is an exact lattice generalization of Lorentz invariance, and that the corner transfer matrix recently developed by Baxter is a lattice boost operator. The role of elliptic function parameters as lattice rapidity variables is discussed.
