WAVEVECTOR SCALING AND THE PHASE-DIAGRAM OF THE CHIRAL CLOCK MODEL

Abstract:
The authors use a finite-size renormalisation group to study the phase diagram of a spin model which exhibits modulated order, the two-dimensional three-state chiral clock model. In addition to the usual scaling of the correlation length, wavevector scaling is shown to provide useful information about the position of the Lifshitz point, and about the position and nature of the commensurate to incommensurate and commensurate to paramagnetic phase transitions.
