In this paper the magnetic behavior of triple layer thin film was investigated by Monte Carlo simulations. We fixed an antiferromagnetic arrangement of the lattice spins for the basal layer of the film and we studied the basal layer magnetic ordering influence on the two other layers, by calculating the out-of-plane and the in-plane magnetization, the out-of-plane and the in-plane magnetic susceptibility and the specific heat. We found out five magnetic ordering phases of the sample: ferromagnetic, antiferromagnetic, mixed phase ordering, paramagnetic and XY-like magnetic ordering of the spins, respectively.
