Title:
Fluctuation-Induced First-Order Phase Transition in {{Dzyaloshinskii}}-{{Moriya}} Helimagnets 
Abstract:
Two centuries of research on phase transitions have repeatedly highlighted the importance of critical fluctuations that abound in the vicinity of a critical point. They are at the origin of scaling laws obeyed by thermodynamic observables close to second-order phase transitions resulting in the concept of universality classes, that is of paramount importance for the study of organizational principles of matter. Strikingly, in case such soft fluctuations are too abundant they may alter the nature...    »
