The computation of the entanglement entropy for inhomogeneous free fermions chains based on $q$-Racah polynomials is considered. The eigenvalues of the truncated correlation matrix are obtained from the diagonalization of the associated Heun operator via the algebraic Bethe ansatz. In the special case of chains based on dual $q$-Hahn polynomials, the eigenvectors and eigenvalues are expressed in terms of symmetric polynomials evaluated on the Bethe roots.

- Delightful reading.
- Innovative approach in established subject.
- Little explores the physics of the model.
The authors compute the entaglement entropy of free fermionic models generated by q-Racah polynomials. The free fermionic models have inhomogeneous couplings and for that reason analytical results are difficult to obtain. To diagonalize the associated correlation matrix, they follow an innovative route using the Bethe ansatz technique. I think this method is promising and will bring new reults both in Physics and Mathematics. Therefore, I recomend the article for publication.
