Dynamics of 2 + 1 Dimensional Sos Surfaces above a Wall: Slow Mixing Induced by Entropic Repulsion


We study the Glauber dynamics for the (2+1)d Solid-On-Solid model above a hard wall and below a far away ceiling, on an L × L box of Z with zero boundary conditions, at large inverse-temperature β. It was shown by Bricmont, El-Mellouki and Fröhlich [12] that the floor constraint induces an entropic repulsion effect which lifts the surface to an average… (More)
