    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...

    We analyze peculiarities of phase transitions in small systems. We focus on the formation of a tiny liquid drop in a small N, V, T system, and develop an "extended modified liquid drop" model, which incorporates the effect of the fluctuations relevant for small systems. We compare the...

    Monte Carlo simulations have been used to study phase transitions on coupled anisotropic ferro/ antiferromagnetic (FM/AFM) films of classical Heisenberg spins. We consider films of different thicknesses, with fully compensated exchange across the FM/AFM interface. We find indications of a phase...

    Canonical ensemble Monte Carlo simulations of 55-atom Morse clusters are used to study the effect of the range of the pair interaction on the cluster melting transition. Several different structural indicators are employed to monitor the solid–liquid transition and to locate the melting...
