    In this paper we present a rigid-rod model (involving a restricted set of orientations) which is solved first with mean-field theory and then by Monte Carlo simulation. It is shown that both interparticle attractions and anisotropic adsorption energies are necessary in order for two successive...

    The rotator phase transition in n-alkane was recently found to show a characteristic pattern of preferred growth along the b-axis (shorter axis) of the unit cell. In order to investigate the origin of this anisotropic growth, a pattern formation in n-alkane crystal is studied during the...

    Monte Carlo simulations are used to study two-dimensional hard rod fluids consisting of spherocylinders confined to lie in a plane. The phase behavior is mapped out as a function of the aspect ratio (L/D) of the particles, from the hard disc limit at one extreme (L/D=0) to the thin hard needle...

    We simulated benzene adsorption in Na-X and Na-Y zeolites on a lattice of binding sites using a two-replica cluster Monte Carlo algorithm. Evidence for a vapor-liquid phase transition is explored for a range of guest-guest and host-guest energy and entropy parameters. The critical temperature is...

    The phase states and phase transitions in a system consisting of a two-dimensional vortex lattice with defects are studied by the Monte Carlo method. It is shown that a "rotating lattice" phase, which is an intermediate phase between the vortex crystal and vortex liquid phases, is present. The...

    A six-state pseudo-spin model has been proposed to understand the phase transition mechanism and kinetics of the cyanoadamantane glassy crystal. Implementation of this model has significantly improved ergodicity in computer simulations (Monte Carlo technique) of the system. In particular, an...
