The boundary condition we use is a radiative boundary condition applied to the difference between a given variable and its exact value: f − fexact = u(r − t)/r .

To define it, we must generalize the untwisted stabilizer (26) to the central stabilizer Cλ : Cλ := {J ∈ Sλ | φλ(K, J ) = 1 for all K ∈ G ′} 9 This construction covers huge class of boundary conditions, but in general it does not exhaust the space of all conformal boundary conditions of a CFT.

In particular there exist boundary conditions without automorphism type; known examples include boundary conditions associated to conformal embeddings (for a review see [50, 23] and lectures by J.-B.

Boundary conditions To construct pure phases, as for Gibbs fields, it is useful to have the notion of finite Gibbs family with given boundary conditions.
Gibbs and Quantum Discrete Spaces
Boundary conditions (d-boundary conditions) are given by a sequence ν N ,d(γ ) of probability measures on the set of finite (not necessary connected) spin graphs γ , intuitively on N -annuli of width d.

Also, it may be possible to extend some of the conclusions of this paper to measures with certain other boundary conditions, such as that generated with free boundary conditions and conditioned on D , but we shall not pursue this here.

Let us first discuss the case of periodic boundary conditions, which will be relevant also for the later discussion of the system with open boundary conditions.
