Non-equilibrium magnetic properties are studied in a two-dimensional mixed spin (1, 5/2) Blume-Capel Ising system under the influence sinusoidal magnetic fields using the effective-field theory based on a decoupling approximation. A dynamic equation of motion has been solved for a square lattice by utilizing a Glauber-type stochastic process. Dynamic phase diagrams are presented in the reduced magnetic field amplitude and reduced temperature plane (h, T ) and reduced crystal-field and reduced temperature plane (, T ). We observe that the system exhibits dynamic tricritical behaviors. Phase diagrams contain the paramagnetic (p), ferrimagnetic (i), and coexistence or mixed-phase regions, namely the i, p, and i + p, which strongly depend on the crystal-field interaction parameter and oscillating magnetic field frequency. We have found that the system only exhibits a second-order transition line in the higherfrequency region. We have also compared our result with the mean-field prediction in order to indicate the effects of correlations and found that some of the dynamic first-order phase lines disappeared.
