Finite Size Effects, Surface Steps, and Phase Transitions

  • P. Kleban
Chapter
Part of the Springer Series in Chemical Physics book series (CHEMICAL, volume 35)

Abstract

This chapter is not a review in the usual sense. It rather comprises an outline of several aspects of the interplay between finite-size effects on surfaces — especially as induced by ordered arrays of steps — and phase transitions or related phenomena.
