**Alexander Loginov, **

Graduated from Rostov State University (Russia) in 1965.

PhD Phys & Math, ILTPE, 1974.

1965-1973, assistant at the Department of Theoretical and Nuclear Physics of Rostov State University; started work at ILTPE in 1976 as a junior researcher, 1986-1991, researcher, 1991 – 2009 senior researcher.

**Research area:** Theoretical investigation of the phase transition and
dynamical properties of the rare-earth magnetics.

**The main results :**

1. An explicit form of an invariant tensor representation for Hamiltonian electrostatically interacting electrons in solids was obtained with irreducible operators of Hubbard transition (in collaboration with V.A.Popov).

2. The breakdown of Adler principle for processes of certain types in isotropic antiferromagnets was found within the framework of magnon-magnon and exiton-magnon interaction theory. (in collaboration with V.A.Popov).

3. The spectrum structure of one-fermion states of the finite non-closed XY-chain in the whole range of anisotropy parameters and transverse field magnitudes was investigated. The nature of ordering for a certain class of systems with non-degenerate ground state and finite volume was explained (in collaboration with Yu.V.Pereverzev).

4. For the antiferromagnetic Ising model (S=1) with easy-plane anisotropy under magnetic field a phase diagram in the temperature-field-anisotropy coordinates was built within mean-field approximation. (in collaboration with Yu.V.Pereverzev).

5. Mechanisms of the structural phase transition in the rare-earth magnetics
induced by the magnetic field were investigated numerically within the vibronic
model. The transition observed in KEr(MoO_{4})_{2} corresponds
qualitatively to the model with two lattice vibration active modes which kinds
of interaction with the electronic excitations are different.
