@article{Delamotte2004FrustratedMI, title={Frustrated magnets in three dimensions: a nonperturbative approach}, author={Bertrand Delamotte and D. Mouhanna and Matthieu Tissier}, journal={Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter}, year={2004}, volume={16}, pages={883-889} }

Frustrated magnets exhibit unusual critical behaviours: they display scaling laws accompanied by nonuniversal critical exponents. This suggests that these systems generically undergo very weak first-order phase transitions. Moreover, the different perturbative approaches used to investigate them are in conflict and fail to correctly reproduce their behaviour. Using a nonperturbative approach we explain the mismatch between the different perturbative approaches and account for the nonuniversal…

It is proposed that vector-spin models with competing interactions in three dimensions have a first-order transition or a second-order one with either N=4 or tricritical mean-field exponents and is argued that this view is supported by experimental and numerical data.
