magnetothermodynamics (uncountable)

  1. (physics) thermodynamics in the presence of a magnetic field
    • 2015, V. S. Maryasin, M. E. Zhitomirsky, R. Moessner, “Low-field behavior of an XY pyrochlore antiferromagnet: emergent clock anisotropies”, in arXiv[1]:
      In addition to a fluctuation-induced six-fold anisotropy present in zero field, an external magnetic field induces a combination of two-, three-, and six-fold clock terms as a function of its orientation providing for a rich and controllable magnetothermodynamics.
