In quantum spin chains, it has been observed that the incommensurability occurs near valence-bond-solid (VBS) type points. It was difficult to study the commensurateincommensurate (C-IC) change. On the one hand field theoretical approaches are not justified because of the short correlation length. On the other hand numerical calculations are not suitable to study the incommensurability since it is needed to treat the large size data. We discuss the relation between the edge state and the incommensurability, partially using the previous our study on the C-IC change.
