We present experimental results attempting to fingerprint nonanalyticities in the magnetization curves of spin glasses found by Katzgraber et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 89, 257202 (2002)] via zero-temperature Monte Carlo simulations of the Edwards-Anderson Ising spin glass. Our results show that the singularities at zero temperature due to the reversal-field memory effect are washed out by the finite temperatures of the experiments. The data are analyzed via the first order reversal curve (FORC…

Ground-state magnetization of the Ising spin glass: A recursive numerical method and Chen-Ma scaling
The ground-state properties of quasi-one-dimensional (Q1D) Ising spin glass are investigated using an exact numerical approach and analytical arguments. A set of coupled recursive equations for the
Hysteresis loop signatures of phase transitions in a mean-field model of disordered Ising magnet
The multiplicity of long-lived states in frustrated disordered magnets makes the task to experimentally deter-mine which of them has the lowest free energy (and thus what thermodynamic phase the

Characterization of Magnetic Nanostructured Materials by First Order Reversal Curve Method
The Interactions and magnetization reversal of Ni nanowire arrays and synthetic anit-ferromagnetic coupled thin film trilayers have been investigated through first order reversal curve (FORC) method.
Insights into the origin of cooperative effects in the spin transition of [Fe(NH2trz)3](NO3)2: the role of supramolecular interactions evidenced in the crystal structure of [Cu(NH2trz)3](NO3)2.H2O.
This hypothesis is strengthened by the crystal structure of 2 and by the absence of crystallographic phase transition for 1 over the whole temperature range of investigation as shown by XRPD, which could be at the origin of the unusually large hysteresis loop displayed by 1.


Theory of spin glasses
A new theory of the class of dilute magnetic alloys, called the spin glasses, is proposed which offers a simple explanation of the cusp found experimentally in the susceptibility. The argument is
Reversal-field memory in the hysteresis of spin glasses.
We report a novel singularity in the hysteresis of spin glasses, the reversal-field memory effect, which creates a nonanalyticity in the magnetization curves at a particular point related to the
Spin glasses: Experimental facts, theoretical concepts, and open questions
This review summarizes recent developments in the theory of spin glasses, as well as pertinent experimental data. The most characteristic properties of spin glass systems are described, and related
Theory of the hysteresis loop in ferromagnets
We consider three mechanisms of hysteresis phenomena in alternating magnetic field: the domain-wall motion in a random medium, the nucleation, and the retardation of magnetization due to slow
We study hysteretic phenomena in random ferromagnets. We argue that the angle dependent magnetostatic (dipolar) terms introduce frustration and long range interactions in these systems. This makes it
