@article{Eynard1999ThePR, title={The Potts-q random matrix model: loop equations, critical exponents, and rational case}, author={Bertrand Eynard and G. Bonnet}, journal={Physics Letters B}, year={1999}, volume={463}, pages={273-279} }

Abstract In this article, we study the q -state Potts random matrix models extended to branched polymers, by the equations of motion method. We obtain a set of loop equations valid for any arbitrary value of q . We show that, for q=2−2 cos l r π ( l , r mutually prime integers with l r ), the resolvent satisfies an algebraic equation of degree 2 r −1 if l + r is odd and r −1 if l + r is even. This generalizes the presently-known cases of q =1,2,3. We then derive for any 0≤ q ≤4 the Potts- q… Expand

We compute the partition function of the $q$-states Potts model on a random planar lattice with $p\leq q$ allowed, equally weighted colours on a connected boundary. To this end, we employ its matrix… Expand

For the Ising model, an argument based on a symmetry of the saddle point equations leads to a nonperturbative proof that the Yang-Lee zeros are located on the unit circle, although no circle theorem is known in this case of random graphs. Expand
