Aspects of frustrated magnetism

Abstract:

Models of magnetism show complex collective behaviour which arises from simple interactions among microscopic degrees of freedom. Upon cooling from high temperatures conventional magnets typically undergo a phase transition to a magnetically ordered phase due to microscopic interactions which favour an ordered state. In frustrated magnets however, competing microscopic interactions place non-trivial constraints on the allowed configurations at low temperature, without selecting a unique or...
