The author considers solutions of the Yang-Baxter equation such that the logarithmic derivative of the transfer matrix yields a quantum spin Hamiltonian which is isotropic in spin space, i.e. SU(2)-invariant. Four such solutions are known for each value of the spin S. (For S=1/2 they degenerate into the same solution, and for S=1 they only give three different solutions). For S<or=6 he shows that these are the only solutions which are SU(2)-invariant, except for S=3 when there is a fifth solution.
