The classical XXZ triangular-lattice antiferromagnet (TAF) shows both an Ising and a BKT transition, related to the chirality and the in-plane spin components, respectively. In this paper the quantum effects on the thermodynamic quantities are evaluated by means of the pure-quantum self-consistent harmonic approximation (PQSCHA), that allows one to deal with any spin value through classical MC simulations. We report the internal energy, the specific heat, and the in-plane correlation length of… 
Modified spin-wave theory with ordering vector optimization: frustrated bosons on the spatially anisotropic triangular lattice
We investigate a system of frustrated hardcore bosons, modeled by an XY antiferromagnet on the spatially anisotropic triangular lattice, using Takahashi's modified spin-wave (MSW) theory. In
Phase transition in the randomly diluted triangular-lattice antiferromagnet with single-ion anisotropy in an external field
Abstract The Heisenberg antiferromagnetic triangular lattice with inter-layer coupling and single-ion anisotropy is investigated by employing an alternative Green function decoupling procedure. The
First-principles studies of the magnetic structure and exchange interactions in the frustrated multiferroic YMnO3
Abstract The electronic structure, magnetism and spin-exchange interactions of a frustrated antiferromagnet YMnO 3 have been studied by the density functional theory (DFT) within the generalized
Magnetic ordering and spin-liquid state of YMnO 3
We have measured the bulk properties as well as the elastic and inelastic neutron scattering of YMnO 3 in order to understand the static and dynamic properties of the Mn moments. Our measurements

We investigate complex spin structures of frustrated two-dimensional Cr, Mn, and Fe monolayer magnets on a triangular lattice provided by the Cu(111) substrate. First we establish a zero-temperature
Quantum Heisenberg antiferromagnets: a survey of the activity in Florence (Review)
Over the years the research group in Florence (Firenze) has produced a number of theoretical results concerning the statistical mechanics of quantum antiferromagnetic models, which range from the
Experimental Realization of a Unique Class of Compounds: XY-Antiferromagnetic Triangular Lattices, KAg2Fe[VO4]2 and RbAg2Fe[VO4]2, with Ferroelectric Ground States
AAg2Fe[VO4]2 with A = K or Rb was synthesized by solid state methods and characterized by thermodynamic properties measurements (Neel order at TN ≈ 3.0 K). The respective nuclear (aK,Rb = 5.48 A, cK
Structure and magnetism of Cr-doped h-YMnO3
Abstract The structures and magnetic properties of YMn1−xCrxO3 (x=0-0.1) were investigated in this study. Powder x-ray diffraction shows that YMn1−xCrxO3 (x=0-0.1) maintains a hexagonal structure
