Using first-principles calculations, we study the microscopic origin of ferroelectricity (FE) induced by magnetic order in the orthorhombic HoMnO3. We obtain the largest ferroelectric polarization observed in the whole class of improper magnetic ferroelectrics to date. We find that the two proposed mechanisms for FE in multiferroics, lattice and electronic(More)
New results are presented concerning binary correcting codes, such as deletion-correcting codes, transposition-correction codes, and codes for the Z-channel. These codes are important due to the possibility of packet loss and corruption on internet transmissions. It is known that the problem of finding the largest correcting codes can be reduced to a(More)
We show that the symmetry of the spin zigzag chain E phase of the orthorhombic perovskite manganites and nickelates allows for the existence of a finite ferroelectric polarization. The proposed microscopic mechanism is independent of spin-orbit coupling. We predict that the polarization induced by the E-type magnetic order can potentially be enhanced by up(More)
Some of the fundamental problems in coding theory can be formulated as extremal graph problems. Finding estimates of the size of correcting codes is important from both theoretical and practical perspectives. We solve the problem of finding the largest correcting codes using previously developed algorithms for optimization problems in graphs. We report new(More)
A class of materials known as "ferroelectric metals" was discussed theoretically by Anderson and Blount in 1965 [Phys. Rev. Lett. 14, 217 (1965)]], but to date no examples of this class of materials have been reported. Here we present measurements of the elastic moduli of Cd2Re2O7 through the 200 K cubic-to-tetragonal phase transition. A Landau analysis of(More)
We describe the low temperature behaviour of the magnetic susceptibility of Cd2Re2O7 in terms of a Landau theory of structural phase transitions. We calculate the zero temperature Pauli susceptibility using a tight-binding approach to reveal the mechanism of coupling between the structural order parameter and itinerant magnetism. Cd 2 Re 2 O 7 is the only(More)
The paper describes a first supercomputer cluster project in Ukraine, its hardware, software and characteristics. The paper shows the performance results received on systems that were built. There are also shortly described software packages made by cluster users that have already made a return of investments into a cluster project.
