Equilibrium and Dynamic Behaviors of Cubic Ce3+ Systems with Anisotropic Coqblin-Schrieffer and Crystal Field Interactions

The cerium and light actinide monopnictides and monochalcogenides show many similar and striking ordering and phase transition properties.1 The occurrence of the series of modulated magnetic structures in CeBi2 and CeSb3, in UAs4,5 and possibly in USb5, including the noncolinear structures observed5 in uranium monopnictides, points to the existence of a strongly anisotropic exchange interaction which dominates the behavior of these systems.
