Abstract

The spectral properties of itinerant two-dimensional systems with (nearly) ferromagnetic ground state are studied within the spin-fermion and classical s-d exchange models. While the former model describes the effect of collective magnetic excitations on the electronic properties, the latter one considers the effect of local moments. We use the equation of motion approach combined with the 1M and 1z expansions (M is the number of spin components and z is the coordination number) to investigate spectral functions. In both models, the spectrum splitting occurs at low temperatures T in the renormalized classical regime due to strong magnetic fluctuations. For the interaction J between electronic and magnetic degrees of freedom comparable to the bandwidth (the intermediate-coupling regime), the 1z expansion predicts full splitting of electronic spectrum or opening the magnetically induced gap below some temperature Ts. At the same time, the spectrum remains only partly split in the 1M expansion with the quasiparticle structure, which becomes fully coherent at low T.
