Universality for the random-cluster model on isoradial graphs

Duminil-Copin, Hugo ; Li, Jhih-Huang ; Manolescu, Ioan

In: Electronic Journal of Probability, 2018, vol. 23, p. -

We show that the canonical random-cluster measure associated to isoradial graphs is critical for all q≥1. Additionally, we prove that the phase transition of the model is of the same type on all isoradial graphs: continuous for 1≤q≤4 and discontinuous for q>4. For 1≤q≤4, the arm exponents (assuming their existence) are shown to be the same for all isoradial graphs. In particular,...
