Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Can anyone explain to me why, concept wise (not from calculations that I get it), is the dispersion relation of magnons (spin waves) quadratic in [itex]k[/itex] for small wavelengths?

Also, can you give me other examples where such behavior appears?

Thank you
