Abstract

The phase diagram of a lattice microemulsion model proposed by Ciach, Høye and Stell [1,2] is studied using mean-field theory and Monte Carlo simulations. Surfactant directional degrees of freedom are summed out exactly before mean-field theory is applied, and the resulting phase diagrams are much improved compared with previous mean-field results.
