Cumulants in the 3-dimensional Ising, O(2) and O(4) spin models    [PDF]

Xue Pan, Lizhu Chen, X. S. Chen, Yuanfang Wu
Based on the universal properties of a critical point in different systems and that the QCD phase transitions fall into the same universality classes as the 3-dimensional Ising, $O(2)$ or $O(4)$ spin models, the critical behavior of cumulants and higher cumulant ratios of the order parameter from the three kinds of spin models is studied. We found that all higher cumulant ratios change dramatically the sign near the critical temperature. The qualitative critical behavior of the same order cumulant ratio is consistent in these three models.
