Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Using Monte Carlo simulation techniques, we study the ferromagnetic order-disorder phase transition in Ising spin fluids with hard-core Yukawa interaction truncated at various cutoff radii r{c}. We focus our interest on the dependence of critical quantities such as the Binder cumulant and various exponent ratios on the value of r{c}, and on the question whether the Fisher-renormalized exponents expected for such systems can be observed in the simulations. It turns out that the corrections to scaling decaying with a rather small exponent prevent reaching the asymptotic region with the computational power available. Thus, we observe only effective exponents, with different (nonuniversal) values depending on the cutoff radius. The same behavior is also found for the critical Binder cumulant. Nevertheless, an exact investigation of the effective susceptibility exponent gamma{eff} as a function of temperature seems to point towards a Fisher-renormalized value. For two selected cutoff radii, the critical temperature is determined more accurately using, in addition to the cumulant crossing technique, the scanning technique and the shifting technique, taking into account corrections to scaling. Simulations of Ising fluids with constant cutoff radius and varying Yukawa-tail screening lengths lambda also show a nonuniversal dependence of U{c} on lambda. Finally, we have performed simulations of the Ising lattice model with increasing number of couplings which show the expected asymptotic behavior, independent of the range of interactions.
