Using Monte-Carlo simulations on large lattices, we study the effects of changing the parameter u (the ratio of the adsorption and desorption rates) of the raise and peel model. This is a nonlocal stochastic model of a fluctuating interface. We show that for 0 < u < 1 the system is massive, for u = 1 it is massless and conformal invariant. For u > 1 the conformal invariance is broken. The system is in a scale invariant phase with the dynamical critical exponent z and other critical exponents… CONTINUE READING
