    Abstract

    The cluster variation method, in its recent formulation using the Moebius inversion, is applied to the study of the critical properties of the spin-1 BlumeCapel model. In order to stress the various steps of the approximation a face-centered-cubic lattice is considered and the free energy of the system is written in several degrees of approximations: single site (one-body), pair (two-body), triangle (three-body), tetrahedron (four-body). The case of the pair approximation is discussed in detail and the resulting phase diagram is compared with that obtained using other methods. The behavior of the dipolar and quadrupolar order parameters and of the pair-correlation functions is examined in three typical cases: second order transition, first order transition, no transitions.
