Theoretical studies of magnets have traditionally concentrated on either classical spins, or the extreme quantum limit of spin-1/2. However, magnets built of spin-1 moments are also intrinsically interesting, not least because they can support quadrupole, as well as dipole moments, on a single site. For this reason, spin-1 models have been extensively studied as prototypes for quadrupolar (spin-nematic) order in magnetic insulators, and Fe-based superconductors. At the same time, because of the…

Quantum magnets admit more than one classical limit and N -level systems with strong single-ion anisotropy are expected to be described by a classical approximation based on SU( N ) coherent states.
