The reduced tension σ cd of the interface between the confined and the deconfined phase of SU (3) pure gauge theory is determined from numerical simulations of the first transfer matrix eigenvalues. At Tc = 1/Lt we find σ cd = 0.139(4)T 2 c for Lt = 2. The interfaces show universal behavior because the deconfined-deconfined interfaces are completely wet by(More)
The reduced tension σ cd of the interface between the confined and the deconfined phase of SU(3) pure gauge theory is related to the finite size effects of the first transfer matrix eigenvalues. A lattice simulation of the transfer matrix spectrum at the critical temperature T c = 1/L t yields σ cd = 0.139(4)T 2 c for L t = 2. We found numerical evidence(More)
We present a multicanonical algorithm for the SU(3) pure gauge theory at the deconfinement phase transition. We measure the tunneling times for lattices of size L 3 ×2 for L = 8, 10, and 12. In contrast to the canonical algorithm the tunneling time increases only moderately with L. Finally, we determine the interfacial free energy applying the(More)
We present a numerical determination of the order-disorder interface tension, σ od , for the two-dimensional seven-state Potts model. We find σ od = 0.0114 ± 0.0012, in good agreement with expectations based on the conjecture of perfect wetting. We take into account systematic effects on the technique of our choice: the histogram method. Our measurements(More)
We present results for the confinement-deconfinement interface tension σ cd of quenched QCD. They were obtained by applying Binder's histogram method to lattices of size L 2 × L z × L t for L t = 2 and L = 8, 10, 12 and 14 and various L z ∈ [L, 4 L]. The use of a multicanonical algorithm and rectangular geometries have turned out to be crucial for the(More)
