Physics of two-dimensional orthorhombic pure magnetic dipolar spin systems
by Richman, Michael Steven, M.S., University of Missouri - Kansas City, 2010, 109; 1485362
Abstract (Summary)

We present novel preliminary evidence obtained by Monte Carlo simulations of a temperature-driven first-order phase transition in a system of two-dimensional continuous-spin magnetic or electric dipoles fixed in position but free to rotate on a co-planar two-dimensional orthorhombic lattice with a 42° rhombic angle. We also present new evidence of a temperature-driven continuous phase transition in this same system. We obtain and discuss novel ground states of two-dimensional continuous-spin dipolar systems with various rhombic angles.
