Random-field Potts model with dipolarlike interactions: Hysteresis avalanches and microstructure
Cerruti, Benedetta; Vives i Santa-Eulàlia, Eduard

A model for the study of hysteresis and avalanches in a first-order phase transition from a single variant phase to a multivariant phase is presented. The model is based on a modification of the random-field Potts model with metastable dynamics by adding a dipolar interaction term truncated at nearest neighbors. We focus our study on hysteresis loop properties, on the three-dimensional microstructure formation, and on avalanche statistics.
