In this paper we study an Ising spin chain with short-range competing interactions in the presence of long-range ferromagnetic interactions in the canonical ensemble. The simultaneous presence of the frustration induced by the short-range couplings together with their competition with the long-range term gives rise to a rich thermodynamic-phase diagram. We compare our results with the limit in which one of two local interactions is turned off, which was previously studied in the literature. Eight regions of parameters with qualitatively distinct properties are featured, with different first-and second-order phase transition lines and critical points.
