Spin-1 Blume–Capel model with random crystal field effects
The random-crystal field spin-1 Blume–Capel model is investigated by the lowest approximation of the cluster-variation method which is identical to the mean-field approximation. The crystal field is either turned on randomly with probability p or turned off with q=1−p in a bimodal distribution. Then the phase diagrams are constructed on the crystal field (Δ)–temperature (kT/J) planes for given values of p and on the (kT/J,p) planes for given Δ by studying the thermal variations of the order parameters. In the latter, we only present the second-order phase transition lines, because of the existence of irregular wiggly phase transitions which are not good enough to construct lines. In addition to these phase transitions, the model also yields tricritical points for all values of p and the reentrant behavior at lower p values.
