In this article we propose a new auxetic periodic lattice with negative Poisson's ratio which tends to the limit v=-1 under particular conditions. We have studied its generation and kinematic, and we give a full description of the mechanical properties of this innovative model. Calibrating the geometrical configuration of the lattice and the mechanical properties of the constituent material we are able to have a Poisson's ratio which is arbitrarily close to -1.

    In this work, we investigate the evolution of magnetic domains with time in magnetic auxetic systems using the Ising model. We show that the mechanical deformation of the structure affects the way how domains evolve and that their rate of growth does not follow a well-known power law associated...

    Inspired from the connection between Lie symmetries and two-dimensional materials, we propose a new statistical lattice model based on a double hexagonal structure appearing in the G2 symmetry. We first construct an Ising-1/2 model, with spin values σ = ±1, exhibiting such a symmetry. The...
