Theoretical Models for Magnetic Properties of Iron Pnictides Part II: Boson Formalism

We analyze the J1 - J2 - Jc Heisenberg model Hamiltonian by using the Dyson-Maleev representation for spin operators and keeping the terms quadratic in Bose operators (linear spin wave theory). From the resulting Hamiltonian we find the ground state magnetisation and spin wave dispersion by employing the Green's function method. We compare the results with those of random phase approximation analysis from Part I and with experimental data for parent pnictide compounds. Neither of the two approaches gives a completely satisfactory description of the magnetic properties of iron pnictides. We conclude that alterations of the model Hamiltonian are needed to get a better agreement between the theory and experiments.

Keywords: Iron pnictides; Green's functions; linear spin wave
