We report a detailed account of the phase diagram of a recently introduced model for nonequilibrium wetting in (1+1) dimensions [H. Hinrichsen, R. Livi, D. Mukamel, and A. Politi, Phys. Rev. Lett. 79, 2710 (1997)]. A mean-field approximation is shown to reproduce the main features of the phase diagram, while providing indications for the behavior of the wetting transition in higher dimensions. The mean-field phase diagram is found to exhibit an extra transition line which does not exist in (1+1… 
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
Nonequilibrium wetting of finite samples
We study, as a canonical model for wetting far from thermal equilibrium, a Kardar–Parisi–Zhang interface growing on top of a hard-core substrate. Depending on the average growth velocity, the model
Directed percolation with long-range interactions: Modeling nonequilibrium wetting.
It is argued that some phase transitions observed in models of nonequilibrium wetting phenomena are related to contact processes with long-range interactions and belongs to the universality class of directed percolation.
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
Leidenfrost Effect as a Directed Percolation Phase Transition.
A critical surface temperature is reported, which marks the upper bound of a large range of temperatures in which levitation and contact coexist, in this range, with decreasing temperature, the equilibrium wet fraction increases continuously from zero to one.
Dynamic wetting with two competing adsorbates.
The dynamic properties of a model for wetting with two competing adsorbates on a planar substrate and finite systems exhibit two metastable states, each dominated by one of the species are studied.
Influence of diffusion on models for nonequilibrium wetting.
It is shown that the critical properties of a recently studied model for nonequilibrium wetting are robust if one extends the dynamic rules by single-particle diffusion on terraces of the wetting
Kardar-Parisi-Zhang interfaces bounded by long-ranged potentials.
A comprehensive picture of unbinding transitions of a nonequilibrium Kardar-Parisi-Zhang interface in the presence of long-ranged substrates and of their classification into universality classes is presented, revealing a crucial role in the dynamics of the wetting or growth of systems with intrinsic anisotropies.
Entropy production of a bound nonequilibrium interface
We study the entropy production of a microscopic model for nonequilibrium wetting. We show that, in contrast to the equilibrium case, a bound interface in a nonequilibrium steady state produces
Generic phase coexistence in the totally asymmetric kinetic Ising model
The physical analysis of generic phase coexistence in the North-East-Center Toom model was originally given by Bennett and Grinstein. The gist of their argument relies on the dynamics of interfaces
