Abstract

The two-time Green function method is employed to explore the phase diagram and the magnetic-fieldinduced quantum criticality of a three-dimensional spin-one planar ferromagnet with easy-axis singleion anisotropy. We adopt the Tyablikov and Anderson-Callen decouplings for higher order exchange and single-ion anisotropy Green functions, respectively. The central finding is that, within a characteristic range of the anisotropy parameter values, reentrant phenomena occur in the phase diagram close to the quantum critical point producing a sensible change of the conventional quantum critical scenario.
