In this paper existence of spin waves with singular points at the wavefront is predicted in a two-sublattice antiferromagnet with uniaxial magnetic anisotropy on the basis of exact 3D solutions of Landau–Lifshitz equations representing to the analogy with optical singularities.

PACS: 75.30.Ds Spin waves.

Key words: spin waves, two-sublattice antiferromagnet, Landau–Lifshitz equations, modulated wave front, singular optics.
