We extended Araki's result on the equivalence of the KMS condition and the variational principle for equilibrium states of quantum lattice systems with short-range interactions, to a large class of lattice models possibly containing mean-field interactions (representing an extreme form of long-range interactions). This result is reminiscent of van Hemmen's work on equilibrium states for mean-field models. The extension was made possible by our recent outcomes on states minimizing the free energy density of mean-field models on the lattice, as well as on the infinite volume dynamics for such models.

Joint work with Jean-Bernard Bru (Ikerbasque and BCAM, Spain) and Rafael Sussumu Yamaguti Miada (University of São Paulo, Brazil).
