"Correlations and order parameter at a Coulomb-crystal phase transition in a three-dimensional dimer model" by Gregoire Misguich, Vincent Pasquier and Fabien Alet
- "Unconventional continuous phase transition in a three dimensional dimer model"
by Fabien Alet, Gregoire Misguich, Vincent Pasquier, Roderich Moessner and Jesper Lykke Jacobsen [Phys.Rev.Lett.]
Alet et. al perform large scale numerical simulations of an interacting dimer model on the cubic lattice and find good evidence for an unusual continuous phase transition in the model. I'll describe their work and explain why the transition is being called unconventional.
