This is true only for extended systems but as soon as we put in boundaries in our system, we would encounter magnetic fields due to the edge currents in the system.
Dipolar Interaction: Why we need Quantum in Magnetism? Having failed to get magnetization through classical and statistical mechanics, we turn ourselves towards microscopic domain of the system to find any worthy candidate to support long range ordering leading to magnetization in our system. We know from electrodynamics that magnetic dipoles interact.
Hence, its worth our time to review the possibility through their interaction. Let us consider two magnetic dipoles with dipole moments m 1 and m 2. If it does, then we would expect the critical temperature T C to be of the order of the strongest dipolar interaction, which is given by the nearest neighbor interaction.
Putting the values we get the T C to be 0. But experimentally, Fe becomes ferromagnet below K! This is a huge difference. Dipolar interaction is too weak to explain this. We need much stronger interaction. This is provided by Coulomb interaction in conjugation with Pauli's exclusion principle. This forms the basis for Exchange interaction, which we would review next. Exchange interaction can be categorized into the following types 1.
Kinetic Super exchange Minimize kinetic energy by reducing gradient of spatial wavefunction, i. We would present a brief discussion regarding the two exchange mechanism in the next two sections.
But we get a cross term in the exchange term. The origin of the cross term hints towards indistinguishability. We now focus on the field operators accompanying the exchange term. Nature of J m1m2 will determine the ordering in the system. Even then the entire term is positive which means that the effect of Coulomb repulsion is still felt by the electrons. Now we consider the inter site interaction. For this we make the following assumption, we consider nondegenerate orbitals per site.
Orbitals from different sites have negligible overlap,i. Hence we get ferromagnetic order. Kinetic exchangeIn the above discussion we have neglected the charge fluctuation, which is not a good approximation for ionic crystals and we drop it here. In an independent electron picture, charge fluctuation result from the hybridization between orbitals of different ions, which allows electrons to tunnel or hop from one ion to another.
For direct exchange interaction we used perturbation technique whereas we would be looking into the kinetic exchange from Hubbard Model. This is just done to ease the observation of the minimization of kinetic energy of the electron. The hamiltonian conserves the total electron number. We consider sector of 2 electrons, which corresponds to a hilbert space of dimension six.
This results from lowering the kinetic energy for anti-parallel spin. Parallel spin is restricted to honor Pauli exclusion principle, which is why t doesn't appear in the eigenenergies of the triplet state. Super exchangeIn real ionic crystal, nonmagnetic anions separate the magnetic cations. Direct and kinetic exchange between cations is weak.
Thus we have a new mechanism for electron hopping. Electron hop to the other cation via anion, which give a relatively higher exchange strength. This mechanism is called Super exchange. The strength and sign of the interaction is determined by Goodenough-Kanamori rules. As an example we have included copper oxide in the figure 3. Oxygen sits between two coppers in the system. Hence the electron exchange between the d-electrons of copper happens via the p-obitals of oxygen.
These kind of interactions are best described by t-J model that we would discuss in the next section. Interesting physics arises for the case where we have half filling one electron per site. These will be shown to be governed by anti ferromagnetic Heisenberg model of spin one half. At other fillings, there are low energy spin and charge excitations which are governed by the so called t-J model. U is diagonal and T lifts the degeneracy in the two subspace. Our goal in this excercise is to project the total Hamiltonian on the the subspace S.
This we do because we are more concerned to look into the half filling configuration of the Hubbard model which is described by the subspace S. The eigenenergies of H are given by the zeroes of the characteristic polynomial. Thus, there are no low energy hopping if every site has one electron.
This is Mott insulator phase. Band MagnetismWe see ferromagnetic metals in our day to day life. Fe, Ni and Co are the poster elements to describe ferromagnetism. However, thus far we have developed models to study magnetism in insulators. These methods are not ideal to describe magnetism in metals. For in case of metals, we have the conduction electrons responsible for both conducting electricity and for magnetic ordering.
Thus we should consider a band theory dealing with this problem. One such theory was developed by Stoner and Wohlfarth which essentially means is a mean field treatment of the conduction band electrons. In order to see magnetic ordering in the system they made certain assumptions. A pictorial description of the above assumption is given in the figure 4.
As we can see, in order to get a magnetic ordering in the system either of the band must be lower in energy. Here R gives the difference in the number of up-aligned and downaligned electrons in the conduction band, which is directly proportional to the magnetization in the system. Let us have a closer look at the parameter R. The system shows enhancement in the permitivity under an external magnetic field.
The system experience Zeeman splitting in the energy band. In general we have N dimensional Hamiltonian matrix, where N usually is in the statistical order. Thus we can now get an eigenvalue equation of an energy independent Hamiltonian. Related Papers.

Introduction to Quantum Magnetism
It seems that you're in Germany. We have a dedicated site for Germany. In the excitement and rapid pace of developments, writing pedagogical texts has low priority for most researchers. However, in transforming my lecture l notes into this book, I found a personal benefit: the organization of what I understand in a hopefully simple logical sequence. Very little in this text is my original contribution.

In the excitement and rapid pace of developments, writing pedagogical texts has low priority for most researchers. However, in transforming my lecture l notes into this book, I found a personal benefit: the organization of what I understand in a hopefully simple logical sequence. Very little in this text is my original contribution. Most of the knowledge was collected from the research literature. Some was acquired by conversations with colleagues; a kind of physics oral tradition passed between disciples of a similar faith.
