Efficient numerical evaluation of thermodynamic quantities on infinite (semi-)classical chains

by   Christian B. Mendl, et al.
Technische Universität München

This work presents an efficient numerical method to evaluate the free energy density and associated thermodynamic quantities of (quasi) one-dimensional classical systems, by combining the transfer operator approach with a numerical discretization of integral kernels using quadrature rules. For analytic kernels, the technique exhibits exponential convergence in the number of quadrature points. As demonstration, we apply the method to a classical particle chain, to the semiclassical nonlinear Schrödinger equation and to a classical system on a cylindrical lattice.
