We apply new techniques developed in [PV1] to the study of some surface effects in the 2D Ising model. We examine in particular the pinningdepinning transition. The results are valid for all subcritical temperatures. By duality we obtained new finite size effects on the asymptotic behaviour of the two– point correlation function above the critical temperature. The key–point of the analysis is to obtain good concentration properties of the measure defined on the random lines giving the high…

Large deviations and continuum limit in the 2D Ising model
Summary. We study the 2D Ising model in a rectangular box ΛL of linear size O(L). We determine the exact asymptotic behaviour of the large deviations of the magnetization ∑t∈ΛLσ(t) when L→∞ for

Maximum and Shape of Interfaces in 3D Ising Crystals
Dobrushin (1972) showed that the interface of a 3D Ising model with minus boundary conditions above the $xy$-plane and plus below is rigid (has $O(1)$-fluctuations) at every sufficiently low
Interaction Versus Entropic Repulsion for Low Temperature Ising Polymers
Contours associated to many interesting low-temperature statistical mechanics models (2D Ising model, (2+1)D SOS interface model, etc) can be described as self-interacting and self-avoiding walks on
Interface localization in the 2D Ising model with a driven line
We study the effect of a one-dimensional driving field on the interface between two coexisting phases in a two dimensional model. This is done by considering an Ising model on a cylinder with Glauber
Classical Billiards in a Magnetic Field and a Potential
We study billiards in plane domains, with a perpendicular magnetic field and a potential. We give some results on periodic orbits, KAM tori and adiabatic invariants. We also prove the existence of
Conformally invariant scaling limits: an overview and a collection of problems
Many mathematical models of statistical physics in two dimensions are either known or conjectured to exhibit conformal invariance. Over the years, physicists proposed predictions of various exponents
Rigorous probabilistic analysis of equilibrium crystal shapes
The rigorous microscopic theory of equilibrium crystal shapes has made enormous progress during the last decade. We review here the main results that have been obtained, both in two and higher

On the local structure of the phase separation line in the two-dimensional Ising system
We investigate the structure of the phase separation line between the pure phases in the two-dimensional Ising model, the liquid and vapor phase in lattice gas language, at low temperatures. The
Surface tension in Ising systems with Kac potentials
We consider an Ising spin system with Kac potentials in a torus of ℤd,d>-2, and fix the temperature below its Lebowitz-Penrose critical value. We prove that when the Kac scaling parameter γ vanishes,
Interface and surface tension in Ising model
The Ising model is one of the simplest non-trivial systems in Statistical Mechanics, for which many physically interesting properties have been established in a rigorous way. It is hoped, that the

Abstract:We discuss some statistical properties of the phase boundary in the 2D low-temperature Ising ferromagnet in a box with the two-component boundary conditions. We prove the weak convergence in

We investigate various 1D solid-on-solid (SOS) models using the transfer matrix method. The main results of the paper concern SOS interfaces near an attracting wall (line) when the end points of the

There are various microscopic definitions of the surface tension /I-'? in the literature, but it is far from obvious (or known), in general, that they are all A proof5 that for the two-dimensional
Two-Dimensional Ising Model as a Soluble Problem of Many Fermions
The two-dimensional Ising model for a system of interacting spins (or for the ordering of an AB alloy) on a square lattice is one of the very few nontrivial many-body problems that is exactly soluble
