We investigate the critical scaling behavior of finite systems in the canonical ensemble. The essential difference with the grand canonical ensemble. i.e., the constraint on the number of particles, is already known to lead to the Fisher renormalization phenomenon that modifies the thermal critical singularities. We show that, in observables that are not Fisher renormalized, it also leads to a finite-size effect governed by an exponent y1 that depends on the temperature exponent yt and the… CONTINUE READING
