Abstract

In the last decade it has been proven that the standard spin-wave theory was able to provide accurate zero-temperature results for a number of lowdimensional Heisenberg spin systems. In this chapter we introduce the main ingredients of the spin-wave technique using as a working model the two-leg mixed-spin ferrimagnetic ladder and the Dyson Maleev boson formalism up to second order in the spin-wave interaction. In the remainder, we survey typical applications in lowspace dimensionality as well as some recent modifications of the theory admitting a quantitative analysis in magnetically disordered phases. The presented spin-wave results are compared with available numerical estimates.
