1 Boring (?) firstorder phase transitions Des Johnston Edinburgh, June 2014 Johnston First Order 1/34
2 Plan of talk First and Second Order Transitions Finite size scaling (FSS) at first order transitions Nonstandard FSS Johnston First Order 2/34
3 First and Second Order Transitions (Ehrenfest) Firstorder phase transitions exhibit a discontinuity in the first derivative of the free energy with respect to some thermodynamic variable. Secondorder transitions are continuous in the first derivative but exhibit discontinuity in a second derivative of the free energy. Johnston First Order 3/34
4 First and Second Order Transitions ( modern ) Firstorder phase transitions are those that involve a latent heat. Secondorder transitions are also called continuous phase transitions. They are characterized by a divergent susceptibility, an infinite correlation length, and a powerlaw decay of correlations near criticality. Johnston First Order 4/34
5 First Order Transitions  Piccies First order  melting First order  field driven Johnston First Order 5/34
6 Second Order Transition H = ij σ i σ j ; Z(β) = {σ} exp( βh) Johnston First Order 6/34
7 First and Second Order Transitions  Piccies First order  discontinuities in magnetization, energy (latent heat) Second order  divergences in specific heat, susceptibility Johnston First Order 7/34
8 Looking at transitions Cook up a (lattice) model Identify order parameter, measure/calculate things Look for transition Continuous  extract critical exponents Finite Size Scaling (FSS) Johnston First Order 8/34
9 Define a model: qstate Potts Hamiltonian H q = ij δ σi,σ j Ising : H = σ i σ j ij Evaluate a partition function Z(β) = {σ} exp( βh q ) Derivatives of free energy give observables (energy, magnetization..) F (β) = ln Z(β) Johnston First Order 9/34
10 Measure 1001 Different Observables Order parameter M = (q max{n i } N)/(q 1) Persite quantities denoted by e = E/N and m = M/N u(β) = E /N, C(β) = β 2 N[ e 2 e 2 ], B(β) = [1 e4 3 e 2 2 ]. m(β) = m, χ(β) = β N[ m 2 m 2 ], U 2 (β) = [1 m2 3 m 2 ]. Johnston First Order 10/34
11 Continuous Transitions  Critical exponents (Continuous) Phase transitions characterized by critical exponents Define t = T T c /T c Then in general, ξ t ν, M t β, C t α, χ t γ Can be rephrased in terms of the linear size of a system L or N 1/d ξ N 1/d, M N β/νd, C N α/νd, χ N γ/νd Johnston First Order 11/34
12 Scaling Another exponent... ψ(0)ψ(r) r d+2 η Scaling relations α = 2 νd ; α + 2β + γ = 2 Two independent exponents Johnston First Order 12/34
13 Now, first order... Formally νd = 1, α = 1 i.e. Volume scaling C N ; ξ N Squeezing a delta function onto a lattice Johnston First Order 13/34
14 What does a first order system look like (at PT) I? Johnston First Order 14/34
15 What does a first order system look like (at PT) II? E Hysteresis COLD HOT β Johnston First Order 15/34
16 What does a first order system look like (at PT) III? Phase coexistence P(E) e05 1e06 1e E Johnston First Order 16/34
17 Heuristic twophase model A fraction W o in q ordered phase(s), energy ê o A fraction W d = 1 W o in disordered phase, energy ê d The hat = quantities evaluated at β Neglect fluctuations within the phases Johnston First Order 17/34
18 Energy moments Energy moments become e n = W o ê n o + (1 W o )ê n d And the specific heat then reads: C V (β, L) = L d β 2 ( e 2 e 2) = L d β 2 W o (1 W o ) ê 2 Max of C max V = L d (β ê/2) 2 at W o = W d = 0.5 Volume scaling Johnston First Order 18/34

20 FSS: Binder Cumulant Energetic Binder cumulant Use (again) B(β, L) = 1 e4 3 e 2 2 e n = W o ê n o + (1 W o )ê n d to get location of min: β Bmin (L) β Bmin (L) = β ln(qê2 o/ê 2 d ) L d ê L d FSS Johnston First Order 20/34

22 A Bit Dull... Peaks grow like L d = V = N Critical temperatures shift like 1/L d No other numbers (?) Johnston First Order 22/34

25 Some other numbers  degeneracy A 3D plaquette Ising model Its dual A big critical temperature discrepancy (30σ) Johnston First Order 25/34

27 And the dual An anisotropically coupled AshkinTeller model H dual = 1 σ i σ j 1 τ i τ j 1 σ i σ j τ i τ j, ij x ij y ij z Johnston First Order 27/34
28 The Problem Original model: L = 8, 9,..., 26, 27, periodic bc, 1/L d fits β = (30) Dual model: L = 8, 10,..., 22, 24, periodic bc, 1/L d fits βdual = (19) β = (11) Estimates are about 30 error bars apart. Johnston First Order 28/34
29 A Solution... Degeneracy Modified FSS Johnston First Order 29/34
