Abstract

In this paper, the λ-model with nearest neighbor interactions is considered with competing Potts interactions on the Cayley tree of order-two. Notice that if λ-function is taken as a Potts interaction function, then this model reduces to the Potts model with competing interactions. The Potts model with considered interactions has only been numerically investigated, hence we aim to propose a measure-theoretical approach for the considered model in a more general setting. Therefore, first ground states of the model are described. Furthermore, certain conditions for the existence of Gibbs measures corresponding to the model are found, which allows the establishment of the existence of the phase transition.
