Discontinuity of the dynamic critical exponents ofO(n)-symmetric systems

  • Volker Dohm


Then-component model of Sasvári, Schwabl, and Szépfalusy is analyzed by means of renormalized field theory to two-loop order. Singular two-loop contributions have a significant effect on the nature of the stability boundary of the dynamic scaling region in then—d plane. Along this boundary the dynamic critical exponents exhibit unexpected discontinuities.
