Simulation of Small Systems

  • H. Müller-Krumbhaar
Part of the Topics in Current Physics book series (TCPHY, volume 7)

Abstract

Two aspects of small systems are considered. The first is the simulation of systems of small extent and given shape, where surface properties can no longer be neglected in comparison with bulk properties. The second aspect is the appearance of small subsystems as parts of the model system being considered. These latter “clusters” play an essential role for the dynamics of phase transitions. Various aspects such as finite-size scaling behavior, relation between surface and bulk properties and interactions between clusters are discussed. Effective methods for the evaluation of clusters statistics are described in an appendix.
