Analysis of the Density of Partition Function Zeroes: A Measure for Phase Transition Strength

W. Janke, Ralph Kenna

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

We discuss a numerical analysis employing the density of partition function zeroes which permits effective distinction between phase transitions of first and second order, elucidates crossover between such phase transitions and gives a new way to measure their strengths in the form of latent heat and critical exponents. Application to a number of models demonstrates the efficacy of the technique.
