Interface Tensions and Perfect Wetting in the Two-dimensional Seven-state Potts Model


We present a numerical determination of the order-disorder interface tension, σod, for the two-dimensional seven-state Potts model. We find σod = 0.0114 ± 0.0012, in good agreement with expectations based on the conjecture of perfect wetting. We take into account systematic effects on the technique of our choice: the histogram method. Our measurements are… (More)
