  • We propose strict canonical and microcanonical Monte Carlo algorithms for an arbitrary lattice-gas binary mixture. We deduce formulas that allow us to obtain field quantities over the ensembles in which their conjugate extensive quantities are conserved. As an example, we have considered a lattice-gas mixture that is equivalent to the spin-1 Blume-Emery-Griffiths model [Phys. Rev. A 4, 1071 (1971)]. For a finite system and near a phase coexistence, the field as a function of its extensive… CONTINUE READING
