On the Induction of the First-Order Phase Magnetic Transitions by Acoustic Vibrations in MnSi

The main result of the paper contains the conclusion that the magnetic phase transition in MnSi always remains first order at any temperature and magnetic field. In these aims, a model of coupling of an order parameter with other degrees of freedom is used. The coupling of magnetic order parameters with long-wave acoustic phonons, in the presence of the nonsingular parts of the bulk and shear moduli, a first-order transition occurs, participle near the transition the heat capacity and the compressibility remain finite, if the heat capacity becomes infinite in the system disregarding the acoustic phonons. The role of the Frenkel heterophase fluctuations is discussed. The impurity effect shows that, for some phases, the heat capacity of the system remains continuous and finite at the transition point. It is supposed that the transition is progressively smoothed by these fluctuations at the application of the magnetic field.
