Theory of Orbital Ordering . II


According to the two-band model in the previous theory, the spontaneous magnetic moment due to the orbital motion of electrons in solids points to a special direction given by the interband matrix element of the angular momentum of an electron around the lattice site to which it belongs. For the three-fold degenerate bands, the free energy of the system is… (More)
