Models with a nonequilibrium wetting transition display a transition also in finite systems. This is different from nonequilibrium phase transitions into an absorbing state, where the stationary state is the absorbing one for any value of the control parameter in a finite system. In this paper, we study what kind of transition takes place in finite systems of nonequilibrium wetting models. By solving exactly a microscopic model with three and four sites and performing numerical simulations we…

We study the entropy production of a microscopic model for nonequilibrium wetting. We show that, in contrast to the equilibrium case, a bound interface in a nonequilibrium steady state produces…

A special point in the phase diagram is investigated, where the model exhibits a roughening transition related to directed percolation, and it is argued that in the vicinity of this point evaporation from the middle of plateaus can be interpreted as an external field in the language of directedPercolation.
