This is a self-contained, tutorial introduction to two-dimensional crystal science and technology. Including concise descriptions of experimental methods and results from fundamental theoretical concepts, this book covers a broad range of two-dimensional structures--from overlayers to freestanding films. All those with an active interest in surface science and statistical physics will find this book to be an essential reference work. Key Features * Presents a coherent overview of experimental methods and theoretical background of two-dimensional crystal physics * Provides a tutorial overview of continuous melting of two-dimensional crystals, roughening transitions, wetting phenomena, and commensurate-incommensurate transitionsPhase Diagrams Computation of the phase diagrams of the adsorption system even within the simplest model of the lattice gas is a ... The Monte Carlo method has proved to be the most straightforward and reliable approach for calculating the phase diagrams. ... (1985) subsequently applied it to the system SeaNi (100).
