Slow coarsening in an Ising chain with competing interactions

Abstract

We investigate the zero-temperature coarsening dynamics of a chain of Ising spins with a nearest-neighbour ferromagnetic and an nth-neighbour antiferromagnetic interactions. For sufficiently large antiferromagnetic interaction, the ground state consists of n consecutive up spins followed by n down spins, etc. We show that the asymptotic coarsening into this… (More)
