Discontinuous Phase Transitions in Nonlocal Schloegl Models for Autocatalysis: Loss and Reemergence of a Nonequilibrium Gibbs Phase Rule.

Simulation reveals a discontinuous transition between populated and vacuum states, but equistable p=p_{eq} determined by the stationarity of planar interfaces between these states depends on the interface orientation and on Ω_{N}.

A modified model of the oxidation of carbon monoxide on a catalyst surface is considered that includes an adjustable probability for adsorbed CO and O atoms located far apart on the lattice to react, and it is found that the nonequilibrium critical point changes from the two-dimensional Ising universality class to the mean-field universalityclass upon introducing even a weak long-range reactivity mechanism.

Crossover between a short-range and a long-range Ising model

Recently, it has been found that an effective long-range interaction is realized among local bistable variables (spins) in systems where the elastic interaction causes ordering of the spins. In such

Decay of metastable phases in a model for the catalytic oxidation of CO.

The results indicate that the transition process follows a mechanism very similar to the decay of metastable phases associated with equilibrium first-order phase transitions and can be described by the classic Kolmogorov-Johnson-Mehl-Avrami theory of phase transformation by nucleation and growth.

The A-${\mathit{B}}_{2}$ surface-reaction model is studied including spontaneous desorption of CO from the catalyst surface and the interface between coexisting phases is found to be nonfractal for P below P below c, but it becomes fractal with dimension D=1.05 when P is above a critical value.

Steady and nonsteady rates of reaction in a heterogeneously catalyzed reaction: Oxidation of CO on platinum, experiments and simulations

The rate of reaction for oxidation of CO over (210) and (111) single‐crystal surfaces of platinum has been studied as a function of reactant pressures (PO2,PCO) and sample temperature (T), both

    We present numerical evidence that the addition of non-zero long-range reactivity to the ZGB model changes the universality class of the critical point from Ising to mean-field
