Concluding, I think it has been demonstrated without doubt that the transfermatrix DMRG has provided a complete and satisfying quantitative picture of ferrimagnetic spin chains, which should be relevant to further experimental studies.

Finally, I would like to thank my collaborators Klaus Maisinger, Takahiro Fukui, Shoji Yamamoto, Sven Brehmer and Hans-Jürgen Mikeska. It is our joint work that has been presented here.
