Erroneous solution of three-dimensional (3D) simple orthorhombic Ising lattices
This paper is an invited comment on <a href="/abs/1110.5527">arXiv:1110.5527</a> presented at Hypercomplex Seminar 2012 and on sixteen earlier published papers by Zhidong Zhang and Norman H. March. All these works derive from an erroneous solution of the three-dimensional Ising model published in 2007. A self-contained detailed rigorous proof is presented that the final expressions in this work are wrong and that the conjectures on which they are based consequently fail. Further errors and shortcomings in the follow-up works are also pointed out.
