Abstract

We consider anisotropic long-range interacting spin systems in d dimensions. The interaction between the spins decays with the distance as a power law with different exponents in different directions: We consider an exponent d1+σ1 in d1 directions and another exponent d2+σ2 in the remaining d2≡d−d1 ones. We introduce a low energy effective action with nonanalytic power of the momenta. As a function of the two exponents σ1 and σ2 we show the system to have three different regimes at criticality, two where it is actually anisotropic and one where the isotropy is finally restored. We determine the phase diagram and provide estimates of the critical exponents as a function of the parameters of the system, in particular considering the case where one of the two σ's is fixed and the other varying. A discussion of the physical relevance of our results is also presented. © 2016 American Physical Society.
