Lowest order noninteracting spin-wave theory for uniaxial, classical, Heisenberg, antiferromagnets, and ferrimagnets is considered. By use of the transverse generalized wave vector dependent magnetic susceptibility, the magnetization and mean energy are evaluated for low temperatures in the spin-wave approximation. Both two- and three-dimensional lattices are considered.
