Research output: Conference article


Using Wolff cluster flip Monte Carlo techniques, three and four state Potts models with random `strong' and `weak' ferromagnetic couplings on a square lattice with (1,0) surface are studied near the phase transition. Both surface and bulk critical properties are investigated. In particular, the critical exponents of the surface magnetization, βs, are found to be close to that of the perfect model.
