Abstract [en]

Pair exchange parameters Jij of the classical Heisenberg Hamiltonian for magnetic interactions in the urchetypical Invar system, face centered cubic (fee) Fe-Ni alloys, are calculated from the first principles. The magnetic structure of Fe-Ni alloys in the region of volumes and electron concentrations related to the Invar effect is highly frustrated. However, the origin of such a frustration in concentrated alloys and in the pure fee Fe are different. While in Fe it is due to the long-range oscillating Jij, in alloys with high Ni concentration it is mainly the consequence of a huge dispersion of the nearest-neighbor exchange parameters, caused by the local environment effects. ©2005 The American Physical Society.
