In order to explore the phase diagram of the golden chain, we must first turn the Ma-Dasgupta rules for the decimation of ferromagnetic (FM) and antiferromagnetic (AFM) bonds, eq. (19), to flow equations.
Infinite Randomness Phases and Entanglement Entropy of the Disordered Golden Chain
This goal was partially achieved in Ref. 21 for a golden chain which contains only AFM bonds.
Infinite Randomness Phases and Entanglement Entropy of the Disordered Golden Chain
From the flow equations, Eqs. (29), we can find the fixed points of the golden chain.
Infinite Randomness Phases and Entanglement Entropy of the Disordered Golden Chain
In the previous section we found the two fixed points of the random golden chain.
Infinite Randomness Phases and Entanglement Entropy of the Disordered Golden Chain
