"a zero magnetization" or "the zero magnetization" or "zero magnetization"? "a zero magnetic field" or "the zero magnetic field" or "zero magnetic field"? Are there any specific rules for articles before the word zero? Is not "zero magnetization" equivalent to "magnetization 0" which comes with zero article? Thanks!
"The external magnetic field acts here as a boundary condition for the model. Let us first consider the model in (none/a/the) zero magnetic field. We see that one possible solution for the magnetization is zero. But (none/a/the) zero magnetization is not a single possible solution here: (none/a/the) non-zero magnetization is possible also."
I would make it:
Let us first consider the model in a zero magnetic field.
Here, the article simply goes with
zero magnetic applies adjectively to
But zero magnetization is not a single possible solution here: non-zero magnetization is possible also.
Here, no article is needed, as you refer to magnetization as a whole.
I do not really see how
zero makes this in any way special. If I substitute strong or weak (and without physics background, that is no problem :P ):
Let us first consider the model in a strong magnetic field.
But strong magnetism is not a single possible solution here: weak magnetism is also possible .
Zero is not used to count the magnetic field(s) here. Then the phrase would be:
Let us first consider the model in zero magnetic fields.
This means something completely different. I understand we are talking about a magnetic field with the specific property of being
zero, like it could have been
