Langevin dynamics simulation of a one-dimensional linear spin chain with long-range interactions

Regular Article


In this paper we study the critical behavior of a simple one-dimensional rotor spin in the form of a linear chain with long-range interactions, using the mean field Langevin dynamics approach and in the presence of fluctuations added by a heat bath. We have computed the specific heat, the magnetic susceptibility, the Binder fourth-order cumulant, and the magnetization, and then we have calculated the critical exponents using finite-size scaling. In addition, we provide a relation between the thermal bath temperature and the temperature of the system. Our results confirm the existence of a second-order critical temperature in the one-dimensional chain of spins with long-range interaction.
