Краткий обзор статьи: We investigate the thermodynamic and critical properties of an interacting domain wall model which is derived from the triangular lattice antiferromagnetic Ising model with the anisotropic nearest and next nearest neighbor interactions. The model is equivalent to the general five–vertex model. Diagonalizing the transfer matrix exactly by the Bethe Ansatz method, we obtain the phase diagram displaying the commensurate and incommensurate (IC) phases separated by the Pokrovsky–Talapov transitions. The phase diagram exhibits commensurate phases where the domain wall density $q$ is locked at the values of $0$, $1/2$ and $1$. The IC phase is a critical state described by the Gaussian fixed point. The effective Gaussian coupling constant is obtained analytically and numerically for the IC phase using the finite size scaling predictions of the conformal field theory. It takes the value $1/2$ in the non-interacting limit and also at the boundaries of $q=0$ or $1$ phase and the value $2$ at the boundary of $q=1/2$ phase, while it varies smoothly throughout the IC region.
