Correlation functions of a Heisenberg ferromagnet in the paramagnetic region

  • Yu. A. Tserkovnikov


In the present paper, in the framework of the coupled-mode approximation for the second-order equations (2.6)–(2.9) we have obtained an approximate closed system of equations (2.10)–(2.14) for the spin correlation functions of a Heisenberg ferromagnet in a vanishing external magnetic field and at temperatures θ above the critical temperature (θ≥θ c )., In principle, Eqs. (2.10)–(2.14) make it possible to investigate the behavior of the correlation functions in the entire investigated temperature range, including the critical point. Equations (2.10)–(2.14) are very complicated, and a numerical calculation is needed to analyze them.

In the fourth section, we obtained interpolation formulas that make it possible to describe in some detail the behavior of the spectral density at both high and low frequencies. It would be expedient to find first the solution, of the simplified system of equations obtained from (2.10)–(2.14) by replacement of the Green's function (2.10) and the spectral density (3.2) by their interpolation expressions (4.2) and (4.3). Substituting (4.3) in (3.3) and (3.4), we obtain equations for λ and Δ, in terms of which all the remaining quantities can be expressed. The solution obtained from the simplified system can be used further as initial approximation in the solution of the system of equations (2.10)–(2.14). However, this problem goes beyond the framework of the given paper.
