Abstract

We propose new families of solutions of the D2 n+1 boundary Yang-Baxter equation. The open spin-chain transfer matrices constructed with these K-matrices have quantum group symmetry corresponding to removing one node from the D2 n+1 Dynkin diagram, namely, Uq(Bn-p) O× Uq(Bp), where p = 0,⋯, n. These transfer matrices also have a p ↔ n - p duality symmetry. These symmetries help to account for the degeneracies in the spectrum of the transfer matrix.
