4) Talk Title : Chiral Magnetism: A Geometric Perspective
We recast the model of a chiral ferromagnet with the Dzyaloshinski-Moriya interaction as a Heisenberg model with nontrivial spin parallel transport . Within this theoretical framework, the Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya vectors take the role of a background SO(3) gauge field. A combination of analytical and numerical arguments suggests that the ground state of this gauged Heisenberg model in 2 spatial dimensions is a hexagonal skyrmion crystal in a wide range of applied magnetic fields. We also illustrate the usefulness of this geometric perspective in the context of Hubbard models with spin orbit coupling by computing phase diagram symmtries of lattices with D3 symmetry . The geometric perspective is not a new idea, being introduced as far back as 1978 by Dzyaloshinskii , but we find that it is highly underutilized in the literature and would often facilitate a better understanding of the physics if implemented.
