    [3] First order transition in antiferromagnetic stacked triangular lattices with vector spins
    D. Loison et H. T. Diep, J. Appl. Phys. 73 (1993) 5642-5644
    In this article, we show by Monte Carlo simulations that the phase transition is definitely of first order in the antiferromagnetic stacked triangular lattices with both classical $XY$ and Heisenberg spins in a range of the antiferromagnetic next-nearest-neighbor interaction $J_2$. The phase diagram in the ($J_2/J_1$,T) space ($J_1$: nearest-neighbor interaction, T:temperature) is shown and discussed.
