PrCo2Si2has a collinear antiferromagnetic structure with a wave vector Q1= (0, 0, 1) for T < T1= 9 K, a high-order commensurate one with Q2= (0,0,25/27) for T1≤ T < T2= 17 K and with Q3= (0,0,7/9) for T2≤ T < TN= 30 K. Molecular field calculations of the moment arrangements and magnetization processes of the compound were made with a molecular field model, and the field-temperature magnetic phase diagram was reproduced. The magnetic transitions are discussed in connection with the wave-dependent molecular field coefficients of the compound.
