1. a) A&M 33.4: a) :

Confirm the normalization |R = (2S)1/2 S(R) |0 and S(R) S+(R) |R = 2S|R

b) Suppose (for S= ½) that we write k| S(R) S(R+aŷ)|k = (1/4) cos θ. Referring to the

relationship for k| S(R) S(R)|k derived in class, what is the value of θ, the angle between

spins on neighboring sites in the ŷ direction?

c) A&M 33.4: c) Show that k| S(R)|k = 0, which means that the phase of the spin wave is

unspecified in state |k.

2. Refer to pp. 661-663 of A&M; the spin susceptibility of a conduction electron gas at T = 0 K

may be discussed by another method. Let n (n/2)(1 ) be the concentration of spin-up (-

down) electrons, i.e. parallel (antiparallel) to a magnetic field H.

a) Show that, in H, the total energy per volume in the spin-up band in a free-electron gas is

E+ = E0 (1 - )5/3 + (n/2)BH (1 - ) ,

where E0 = (3/10)nF in terms of the Fermi energy F in zero magnetic field. Find a similar

expression for E–.

b) Minimize the total energy per volume E+ + E– with respect to and solve for the equilibrium

value of in the approximation á 1. Show then that the magnetization M = (3/2) nB2H/F, as

in the class discussion of Pauli paramagnetism.

c) We now consider the effect of exchange interactions among the conduction electrons. As a

viable first approximation, we assume that electrons with parallel spins interact with each other

with energy -V (with V > 0), while electrons with antiparallel spins do not interact with each

other. Show that the additional term - (1/8) V n2 (1 - )2 is added to E+ and find a similar

expression for E–.

d) Minimize the total energy and solve for again in the limit á 1. Show that the

magnetization is

Notice that there is peculiar behavior for V > 4F/3n. One can easily show that at H=0 the total

energy for the paramagnetic state with = 0 is unstable relative to a ferromagnetic state with

finite . This is called the Stoner criterion for ferromagnetism. (adapted from Kittel, ISSP) This

kind of phase transition at T=0 is now glamorized with the label "quantum phase transition."

3. Consider the Landau theory of phase transitions at a tricritical point, for which

b) Show that the susceptibility X = P/ E)E=0 |T0 –T|-1 i.e. g = 1 as for the critical

transition, but that the critical amplitude ratio is 4 rather than 2.

4. A&M 34–2.

5. A&M 34–4. [Note that you do not need to derive eq. (34.46).]
