In science:

Here, the time-averaged magnetisation Q = H m(t)dt/τ (τ = 2π/ω is the time period of the oscillating field) over a full cycle of the oscillating field plays the role of order parameter for this type of proposed nonequilibrium dynamic transition.

In this situation, the magnetisation does not change its sign.
Nonequilibrium Phase Transitions in Model Ferromagnets: A Review
As a result, the magnitude of the time-averaged magnetisation If one sees the plot of m(t) − h(t), it is asymmetric about the is nonzero (Q 6= 0).
Nonequilibrium Phase Transitions in Model Ferromagnets: A Review
As a result, the magnetisation can change its sign for this amount of field.
Nonequilibrium Phase Transitions in Model Ferromagnets: A Review
Consequently, the time-averaged magnetisation over a full cycle becomes zero (Q = 0) when m(t) − h(t) plot is symmetric.
Nonequilibrium Phase Transitions in Model Ferromagnets: A Review
It should be noted here (in eqn.1) that the dynamics of the one component magnetisation (m) is purely deterministic.
Nonequilibrium Phase Transitions in Model Ferromagnets: A Review
First the instantaneous response magnetisation per lattice site at time t is easily calculated: m(t) = ΣiSi (t)/N , where N is the total number of spins in the lattice (N = Ld if one considers a d-dimensional hypercubic lattice of linear size L). N such spin updates is defined as one MC step per spin(MCSS).
Nonequilibrium Phase Transitions in Model Ferromagnets: A Review
For lower values of T and h0 , the magnetisation oscillates asymmetrically (around m = 0 line) which gives rise to asymmetric m − h loop (resides asymmetrically in m − h plane) (see Fig.1).
Nonequilibrium Phase Transitions in Model Ferromagnets: A Review
When T and h0 become large, the magnetisation oscillates symmetrically (around m = 0 line).
Nonequilibrium Phase Transitions in Model Ferromagnets: A Review
However, the difference of this upper bound increases with increasing frequency, because of the effectice relaxational lag (τef f , time lag of magnetisation with respect to the applied field).
Nonequilibrium Phase Transitions in Model Ferromagnets: A Review
The effective relaxational lag of the magnetisation arises due to the intrinsic relaxation time of the system.
Nonequilibrium Phase Transitions in Model Ferromagnets: A Review
An analytical formulation of this critical slowing down (of Q) can be done by solving the linearised mean-field equation of motion for the average magnetisation .
Nonequilibrium Phase Transitions in Model Ferromagnets: A Review
The reason behind it is, that the axial transition occurs in presence of axial field which reverses the z -component of magnetisation.
Nonequilibrium Phase Transitions in Model Ferromagnets: A Review
In the case of off-axial transition, the off-axial field cannot reverse the z -component of magnetisation.
Nonequilibrium Phase Transitions in Model Ferromagnets: A Review
But as the value of off-axial field increases, the value of x-component of magnetisation increases at the cost of z -component of magnetisation.
