Layering and wetting transitions for an interface model

Salvador Miracle Solé, Pedro L. Garrido, Joaquín Marro, F. de los Santos
We study the solid-on-solid interface model above a horizontal wall in three dimensional space, with an attractive interaction when the interface is in contact with the wall, at low temperatures. The system presents a sequence of layering transitions, whose levels increase with the temperature, before the complete wetting above a certain value of this quantity.
