We revisit the scaling properties of a model for nonequilibrium wetting [Phys. Rev. Lett. 79, 2710 (1997)], correcting previous estimates of the critical exponents and providing a complete scaling scheme. Moreover, we investigate a special point in the phase diagram, where the model exhibits a roughening transition related to directed percolation. We argue that in the vicinity of this point evaporation from the middle of plateaus can be interpreted as an external field in the language of…

Nonequilibrium wetting
When a nonequilibrium growing interface in the presence of a wall is considered a nonequilibrium wetting transition may take place. This transition can be studied trough Langevin equations or
Finite size effects in nonequilibrium wetting
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
Nonequilibrium wetting transition in a nonthermal 2D Ising model
Abstract Nonequilibrium wetting transitions are observed in Monte Carlo simulations of a kinetic spin system in the absence of a detailed balance condition with respect to an energy functional. A
Mutual information as a two-point correlation function in stochastic lattice models
Studying a particular growth model it is demonstrated that the mutual information exhibits scaling properties that are consistent with the established phenomenological scaling picture.
Kinetic Monte Carlo simulation of random deposition and scaling behavior with respect to the germination length
This work aims at analyzing the scaling behavior and develop correlations during surface growing for different germination lengths using a kinetic Monte Carlo approach, and proves the existence of correlations independent of the system size but dependent on the germination length.
