In science:

We notice a minimum in the magnon dispersion relation occurring at an incommensurate wave-vector q∗ ≃ 3π/4, using the notation of Eq. (4).
Melting of a frustration-induced dimer crystal and incommensurability in the J_1-J_2 two-leg ladder
The up arrows indicate an approximate location of the incommensurate wave-vector q∗ corresponding to the minimum of the magnon relation dispersion.
Melting of a frustration-induced dimer crystal and incommensurability in the J_1-J_2 two-leg ladder
Entering the RS phase by increasing further J⊥, the groundstate is now non-degenerate and the spectrum fully gapped with an incommensurate magnon branch as the lowest excitation.
Melting of a frustration-induced dimer crystal and incommensurability in the J_1-J_2 two-leg ladder
For J⊥ = J1 (Fig. 5(c)), this branch enters the continuum of many-magnons excitations for small and large kx, but for large enough transverse coupling (J⊥ = 3J1 in Fig. 5(d)), the incommensurate magnon branch is well separated from the continuum (as usually found for Heisenberg ladders).
Melting of a frustration-induced dimer crystal and incommensurability in the J_1-J_2 two-leg ladder
This section is dedicated to a more detailed study of the magnon excitation branch and its main features : effect of the frustrating term, spin gap, correlations lengths and the onset of incommensurability.
Melting of a frustration-induced dimer crystal and incommensurability in the J_1-J_2 two-leg ladder
The onset of incommensurability across the phase diagram is obtained by choosing the de finition from real-space spin correlations, i.e. when q deviates from π .

In comparison to the standard ladder dispersion relation, frustration brings the harmonic 2k leading to incommensurability.

The threshold and incommensurate wave-vector (11) are the ones that actually appear as the angle of the helical structure of the classical version of both the J1 -J2 chain and ladder models, hence in the spin-wave calculation.
Melting of a frustration-induced dimer crystal and incommensurability in the J_1-J_2 two-leg ladder
One may observe from Eq. (14) that the local maximum of the spin gap is actually realized for a value of J2 larger than the onset of the q∗ incommensurability wave-vector.
Melting of a frustration-induced dimer crystal and incommensurability in the J_1-J_2 two-leg ladder
III C that q∗ gets very different from q in the large-J⊥ limit so that the local maximum is actually not related to the true onset of incommensurability associated with q .
Melting of a frustration-induced dimer crystal and incommensurability in the J_1-J_2 two-leg ladder

One may wonder whether the spin correlation length ξspin obtained from Eq. (9) has also a singular behavior as it has been observed for instance in the spin-1 chain38,39 and whether its location is related to the onset of incommensurability.
Melting of a frustration-induced dimer crystal and incommensurability in the J_1-J_2 two-leg ladder
From Fig. 7, we do observe that ξ−1 spin displays a local singular maximum close to the onset of incommensurability associated with q (and not q∗ or ¯q ).
Melting of a frustration-induced dimer crystal and incommensurability in the J_1-J_2 two-leg ladder
These observations support that the physical onset of incommensurability is the one associated with q since it is associated with a singular behavior in ξspin, as for the MG point of a single chain.
Melting of a frustration-induced dimer crystal and incommensurability in the J_1-J_2 two-leg ladder
How the local minimum observed close to the transition line interpolates with the local maximum arising in the vicinity of the onset of incommensurability in the dispersion relation is a challenging question.
