Spin-dependent tunneling through a quantum dot coupled to one ferromagnetic and one superconducting electrodes is studied in the Andreev reﬂection (AR) regime. Electrical conductance is calculated within the nonequilibrium Green function technique. Eﬀects due to a competition between the Coulomb correlations on the dot and intradot spin-ﬂip processes are considered in the linear transport regime and for diﬀerent coupling strengths between the dot and the external electrodes. It is shown that when a coherent spin rotation is present on the dot, Coulomb interactions may lead to a signiﬁcant enhancement of the AR tunneling current and even to the perfect AR transmission. Origin of occurrence of a variety of the multipeak structure of the linear conductance is also discussed.
