    Abstract

    A theory is given for the onset of distorted spiral order in Nd at T-2 below T-N. For Pr, the dominant quasielastic peak is due to induced sinusoidal magnetic ordering, which can be accounted for by mode-mode coupling theory. The second, broader peak is due to an induced, phase-locked transverse mode. Hexagonal antisotropy causes a resulting distorted spiral structure with spin-slips. (C) 1998 Elsevier Science B.V.
