    [7] Phase diagram in antiferromagnetic stacked triangular lattices with XY spins.
    E.H. Boubcheur, D. Loison et H. T. Diep, Phys. Rev. B 54 (1996) 4 165
    The phase transition in the antiferromagnetic stacked triangular lattices with classical XY spins interacting via antiferromagnetic nearest and next-nearest-neighbor bonds, $J_{1}$ and $J_{2}$, is studied by means of extensive histogram Monte Carlo simulations. When $J_{2}=0$, the transition is of second order with critical exponents slightly different from those given by other authors. It is shown that in a range of $J_{2}$, the transition is of first order. The general phase diagram in the $(J_{2}, T)$ space ($T$: temperature) is shown and discussed.
