What is the J 1 - J 2 model ? J1J1 J2J2 INTRODUCTION: Why the J 1 - J 2 model ? ? Can quantum fluctuations stabilize a disordered phase in spin systems at T=0 ? relevance of low dimensionality relevance of small spin spin systems: symmetry breaking (magnetization) (no 1D for Mermin-Wagner theorem) T = 0

ANALITYCAL APPROACH : 2D Quantum model at T=0 2+1 D Classical model at T eff ≠0 Haldane mapping Non Linear Sigma Model method for = J 2 /J 1 > 1/2 I. The partition function Z is written in a path integral representation on a coherent states basis. II. For each sublattice every spin state is written as the sum of a “Néel” field and the respective fluctuation.
