Abstract [en]

The stochastic series expansion quantum Monte Carlo method is used to study thin ferromagnetic films, described by a Heisenberg model including local anisotropies. The magnetization curve is calculated, and the results compared to Schwinger boson and many-body Green's function calculations. A transverse field is introduced in order to study the reorientation effect, in which the magnetization changes from out of plane to in plane. Since the approximate theoretical approaches above differ significantly from each other, and the Monte Carlo method is free of systematic errors, the calculation provides an unbiased check of the approximate treatments. By studying quantum spin models with local anisotropies, varying spin size, and a transverse field, we also demonstrate the general applicability of the recent cluster-loop formulation of the stochastic series expansion quantum Monte Carlo method.
