The three-dimensional q-state Potts model, forced into coexistence by fixing the density of one state, is studied for q=2, 3, 4, and 6. As a function of temperature and number of states, we studied the resulting equilibrium droplet shapes. A theoretical discussion is given of the interface properties at large values of q. We found a roughening transition… CONTINUE READING
