The six-vertex F model on the square lattice constitutes the unique example of an exactly solved model exhibiting an infinite-order phase transition of the Kosterlitz-Thouless type. As one of the few non-trivial exactly solved models, it provides a welcome gauge for new numerical simulation methods and scaling techniques. In view of the notorious problems of clearly resolving the Kosterlitz-Thouless scenario in the two-dimensional XY model numerically, the F model in particular constitutes andoi:10.1088/0305-4470/38/32/002 fatcat:dylxzcrkzzgldl5q75th4tgllq
