Tricritical universality in two dimensions

Abstract

A powerful, new extension of the Monte Carlo renormalization-group (MCRG) method is used to accurately determine the tricritical point and exponents in two very different two-dimensional models: an Ising antiferromagnet and a Blume-Capel model. We find four relevant tricritical eigenvalues which are essentially identical for both models. We also demonstrate that subtle warning signals appear in a standard Monte Carlo calculation when a second-order transition is being misinterpreted as first order. © 1981 The American Physical Society.
