Abstract: Due to its peculiar properties and presence of many types of different basic mechanisms determining the magnetic ground state, CePtSn compound is one of the well-studied alloys from the CeTX group with TiNiSi-type structure. In this article we present the results of elastic and transport properties, and we concentrate our efforts on the description of the evolution for field applied along the b-axis, where a magnetic-history-dependent (MHD) phenomenon occurs. Based on this results and the fact that the low-temperature zero-field-cooled state may be described as the presence of two kinds of spin slips in magnetic structure, we conclude that the MHD behavior may be interpreted as the magnetic field annealing of one set of spin stacking faults in the magnetic structure in favor of the other one.
