Such
apointseparating
the
firstorderline
from
the
critical
line
has
beencalled
the
tricritical
point
by
Griffiths
[26,27].
Theappearance
of
this
point
isdue
to
the
presence
in
the
Hamiltonian
of
competinginteractions
having
different
signs.
Thereareother
exampleswhen

tricritical
pointsoccur,againbecause
of
the
competition
of
twosign
potentials.
Thus,
Krinsky
and
Furman
[28]
haveconsidered
aspin1
Ising
model
containing
a
biquadratic
exchange,
anonsymmetrictripleexchange
and
aonesize
anisotropy
as
well
as
astandard
exchangeinteraction.
Tricriticality
has
been
found
and
analysed
by
Sarbach
and
Fisher
[29]
for
a

manycomponent
system
with
a
Hamiltonian
including,
in
addition
to
the
usualexchange
and
external
field,
onesize
anisotropies
of
second,
fourth
and
sixth
orders
in
powersof
spin,
and
acubic
field
term.An
excellent
review
on
the
theoryof
tricritical
points
has
been
given
by
Lawrie
and
Sarbach

[30].
In
our
case
(15)
gives
for
the
tricritical
point

g,=
In3/2&.
(16)
At
the
tricritical
temperature
the
critical
exponents,as
is
known
[30],
have
jumps.
We
can
check
this
by
calculating
the
asymptotic
behaviour
of
thermodynamic
characteris
tics
for
~=(0@,)/0,=(T

T,)/T,+O.

there

In

the

The
