Summary We study the dispersion of the magnons (triplet states) in SrCu2(BO3)(2) including all symmetry-allowed Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interactions [J. Phys. Chem. Solids 4, 241 (1958); Phys. Rev. 120, 91 (1960)]. We can reduce the complexity of the general Hamiltonian to a simpler form by appropriate rotations of the spin operators. The resulting Hamiltonian is studied by both perturbation theory and exact numerical diagonalization on a 32-site cluster. We argue that the dispersion is dominated by Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interactions. We point out which combinations of these anisotropies affect the dispersion to linear order, and extract their magnitudes.
