Potts model, first-order phase transitions
Monte-Carlo simulations are used to examine the onset of the first-order
phase transition on the example of one-dimensional Potts model with
power-law decaying interactions.
The scaling analysis of the interface free energy, 4'th order
cumulants and other quantities derived from the energy, order-parameter
and cluster-size distributions is performed in order to study the change
of character of the transition.
