We report the results of $$mu$$SR and $$^{29}$$Si NMR measurements carried out on the cubic chiral magnet EuPtSi. Our zero-field $$mu$$SR experiments revealed the development of critical slowing down of Eu spin fluctuations over a relatively wide critical region above $$T_N$$. We also found from $$^{29}$$Si NMR that the spin fluctuations are strongly suppressed by magnetic field in the paramagnetic state above 20K. These characteristic spin dynamics observed over a wide region of temperature and magnetic field suggest the presence of magnetic frustration in the spin system. Such frustration would underlie the mechanism stabilizing the short-period skyrmion lattice observed in this compound.
