Rastelli E., Regina S., Tassi A. Monte Carlo simulations on a triangular Ising antiferromagnet with nearest and next-nearest interactions. In: Physical Review B, vol. 71 (17) article n. 174406. APS, 2005.
Monte Carlo sMCd simulations on the triangular Ising antiferromagnet with antiferromagnetic next-nearest neighbor interaction points out the existence of a first order phase transition between the low temperature two-sublattice antiferromagnetic phase and the high temperature paramagnetic phase. This scenario differs from that observed when the next-nearest neighbor interaction is ferromagnetic, where a Berezinskii-Kosterlitz-Thouless phase occurs at intermediate temperature between the three-sublattice ferrimagnetic phase at low temperature and the paramagnetic phase at high temperature.
