Monte Carlo simulation of the three-state vector Potts model on a three-dimensional random lattice

Technical Report:

Abstract

We have performed a numerical simulation of the three-state vector Potts model on a three-dimensional random lattice. The averages of energy density, magnetization, specific heat and susceptibility of the system in the N{sup 3}(N=8,10,12) lattices were calculated. The results show that a first order nature of the Z(3) symmetry breaking transition appears, as characterized by a thermal hysterisis in the energy density as well as an abrupt drop of magnetization being sharper and discontinuous with increasing of volume in the cross-over region. The results obtained on the random lattice were consistent with those obtained on the three-dimensional cubic lattice. (author). 12 refs, 4 figs.
