In science:

In the low energy limit, we find the number of F bonds is very close to the number of AF bonds.
Thermodynamics of strongly disordered spin ladders
Even though the numbers of AF and F bonds are almost equal, the strengths of AF and F bonds behave completely differently in this limit.
Thermodynamics of strongly disordered spin ladders
When the bond cutoff Ω goes below 0.2, where the numbers of AF and F bonds are almost equal, the ratio of the averages grows rapidly which means the AF bonds are much stronger than the F bonds in the low energy limit.
Thermodynamics of strongly disordered spin ladders
In (c) we plot the difference of the averaged logarithms of AF and F bonds; the exponential of this quantity reflects the ratio between typical AF and F bonds.
Thermodynamics of strongly disordered spin ladders
Similar to (b), here we see the the difference grows very fast, again showing the dominance of AF bonds over the F bonds.
Thermodynamics of strongly disordered spin ladders
On the other hand spins in opposite sublattices tend to be closer to each other, leading to the fact that AF bonds dominate F bonds in strength.
Thermodynamics of strongly disordered spin ladders
Here the strongest bond J2 is decimated, together with the neighboring bonds J1 and J3 , yielding an effective interaction ˜J between what were the third-nearest neighbors. (b) Schematic diagram for decimation in ladder.
Thermodynamics of strongly disordered spin ladders
We also find that the crossover temperature depends mainly on the impurity bond concentration, while the width of the crossover depends mainly on the impurity bond strength; we determine their dependences semiquantitatively.
Modified spin-wave study of random antiferromagnetic-ferromagnetic spin chains
JF and JAF are the coupling strengths of the ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic bonds, respectively. p is the concentration of the antiferromagnetic impurity bonds.
Modified spin-wave study of random antiferromagnetic-ferromagnetic spin chains
The study of the effects of impurity bond strength shows that the low-temperature Curie regime can be consistently pushed to lower temperatures by decreasing the antiferromagnetic impurity bond strength.
Modified spin-wave study of random antiferromagnetic-ferromagnetic spin chains
Since each spinS must participate in 2S valence bonds, there must be (2S − σ) valence bonds across the odd links.
Permutation-Symmetric Multicritical Points in Random Antiferromagnetic Spin Chains
As suggested by the valence-bond description, these are distinguished by the properties of a chain end: For a chain in the σ phase, if an even bond in an infinite chain is removed, the two resulting semi-infinite chains have ground states that contain free spin-(σ/2)’s localized near their ends.
Permutation-Symmetric Multicritical Points in Random Antiferromagnetic Spin Chains
Our value of α and that of Ref. are based directly on the finite-size scaling of the bond energy at the critical point whereas in Ref. the average bond energy is numerically differentiated to obtain the specific heat and the finite-size scaling of the peak is used to obtain α.
Ground state numerical study of the three-dimensional random field Ising model
In order to solve the effective one-dimensional problem and obtain the order parameter m we use the real space renormalization group ~RSRG! method.18,19 In this approach, the strongest bond in the distribution and its two weaker neighbors are progressively decimated and substituted by a much weaker effective bond.
Bond-randomness-induced Neel order in weakly coupled antiferromagnetic spin chains
This is a perturbative procedure where the bonds neighboring the strongest bond are treated as perturbations.
