Abstract

Abstract A formulation, using the double time Green's function method, is presented for the anisotropic spin-one ferromagnetic system in the presence of biquadratic exchange and an expression is given for the critical temperature T c in terms of parameters associated with the uniaxial anisotropy (treated exactly) and the biquadratic interaction (only the longitudinal part, treated in RPA). The prediction that T c increases with the biquadratic exchange is found to be consistent with the recent calculation.
