Abstract:

An alternative form of the self-consistent cluster-variation theory is presented. The effect of including the smallest three-spin cluster is discussed with regard to the Curie temperature for the spin-12 fcc ferromagnetic insulator in the Heisenberg model. It is found that for range of exchange to first neighbors no long range ordering temperature exists in this approximation. Author
