The microemulsion model was proposed by B.Widom for the description of the microfilm structure in the “oil-water” mixture with some values of the mixture parameters. The model is a classical 3-D spin lattice model. The spin takes the values ±1 and the interaction is described by the Hamiltonian:
$$H(\varphi ({\mathbb{Z}^3})) = - I\sum\limits_{dist(x,y) = 1} {\varphi (x)\varphi (y) - J\sum\limits_{dist(x,y) = \sqrt 2 } {\varphi (x)\varphi (y) - K\sum\limits_{dist(x,y) = 2} {\varphi (x)\varphi (y)} } }$$
where φ( 3) is a configuration on 3, x,y∈ℤ 3, J=-2K. This Hamiltonian includes the interaction of nearest neighbours in the first sum, the interaction of diagonal neighbours in the second sum and the interaction of next nearest neighbours in the third sum.
