Spurious first-order phase transitions in the self-consistent phonon approximation

Abstract

It is shown that when the self-consistent phonon approximation is applied to displacive phase transitions, it leads to inconsistent results near the transition point, and that this may give rise to spurious first-order transitions. © 1972 The American Physical Society.
