Contribution to the Spin-Wave Theory of a Dilute Heisenberg Ferromagnet

A spin-wave theory of a dilute Heisenberg ferromagnet is studied using Green's function techniques. The Green's function for one-magnon excitations is calculated in two ways, a decoupling method and

Excitations in impure magnetic crystals

In this thesis we consider two types of magnetic system, the ferromagnet and the antiferromagnet, containing substitutional impurities. The Heisenberg Hamiltonian is used and the spin-waves are

Excitations in the dilute Heisenberg ferromagnet using the coherent potential approximation

The coherent potential approximation (CPA) has been generalized to describe spin waves in a dilute Heisenberg ferromagnet at T=0. The full T matrix of an isolated vacancy in an effective medium is

A Green function theory of spin waves in randomly disordered magnetic systems. I. The ferromagnet

The authors present a new technique for discussing the behaviour of spin waves in a ferromagnetically ordered system where the spins occupy random positions on a lattice. It is shown how a

Spin-wave theory of ferromagnetic crystals containing impurities

A spin-wave theory of ferromagnetic crystals containing a low concentration of impurity atoms with different spin and exchange integrals is developed by a Green function method. The Green function of

Contribution to the theory of a dilute Heisenberg ferromagnet

A theory of a dilute Heisenberg ferromagnet is studied in two ways; the molecular field approximation and the Tyablikov approximation. By considering the Heisenberg model in the molecular field

Spin waves and long-range order in the diluted heisenberg ferromagnet at zero temperature

The variational treatment of spin waves in the randomly diluted Heisenberg ferromagnet at zero temperature is studied. It is argued that a convenient variational principle for the excitation spectrum

Excitations in randomly diluted ferromagnets

The dynamics of a randomly diluted quenched Heisenberg ferromagnet have recently been analyzed by several authors. Within an effective medium type of approach, the correct site aspect of this problem

Spin-Wave Impurity Levels in a Heisenberg Ferromagnet

As an application of the results obtained in a preceding paper, spin-wave impurity levels in a Heisenberg ferromagnet due to a magnetic or a nonmagnetic impurity are studied, which are discrete and

Spin waves in disordered materials

An efficient methodology to study spin waves in disordered materials based on a Heisenberg model and enables calculations of magnon properties in spin systems with disorder of an arbitrary kind and concentration of impurities is presented.
