Theoretical model for magnetic ordering in the heavy-fermion metal URu2Si2 is suggested. The 17.5 K transition in this material is ascribed to formation of a spin-density wave SDW , which develops due to a partial nesting between electron and hole parts of the Fermi surface and has a negligibly small form factor. Staggered field in the SDW state induces tiny antiferromagnetic order in the subsystem of localized singletsinglet levels. Unlike the other models, our scenario is based on coexistence…

Field-induced Fermi surface reconstruction and adiabatic continuity between antiferromagnetism and the hidden-order state in URu2Si2.
Shubnikov-de Haas oscillations reveal at high fields an abrupt reconstruction of the Fermi surface within the hidden-order (HO) phase of URu2Si2, suggesting an increase in the effective carrier density and suggesting that the field suppression of the HO state is ultimately related to destabilizing a gap in the spectrum of itinerant quasiparticles.

Competition of ground states in URu2Si2 and UCoGe
In this thesis two heavy fermion compounds have been studied under pressure. URu2Si2 has a mysterious ground state below T0 = 17.5 K at ambient pressure. The order parameter has not been identified
Hidden order in URu2Si2 originates from Fermi surface gapping induced by dynamic symmetry breaking.
A microscopic explanation of the hidden order is provided using density-functional theory calculations and it is deduced that spontaneous symmetry breaking through a dynamic mode of antiferromagnetic moment excitations causes a surprisingly large Fermi surface gapping.

This work proposes via ab-initio calculation and effective model that a novel spin-orbit density wave in the f-states is responsible for the hidden-order phase in URu2Si2, and compute topological index of the order parameter to show that the hidden order is topologically invariant.

Spontaneous, collective ordering of electronic degrees of freedom leads to second-order phase transitions that are characterized by an order parameter. The notion "hidden order" (HO) has recently

The measured magnetic field dependence of the ordered antiferromagnetic moment and the magnetic excitations in the heavy-fermion superconductor URu2Si2 for fields up to 17 T applied along the tetragonal c axis suggests that the moment m is connected to a hidden order parameter psi which belongs to the same irreducible representation breaking time-reversal symmetry.
