Determination of the critical exponents for absorbing phase transitions in the conserved lattice gas model in three dimensions.
ABSTRACT The critical exponents were measured for absorbing phase transitions in the conserved lattice gas (CLG) model on a simple cubic lattice. The correlation-length exponent calculated from the dynamic exponent obtained by finite-size scaling and from the mean spreading distance was consistently found to be ν(⊥)=0.631±0.02, which yields a positive specific heat exponent α=2-dν(⊥) on a pure system. The pure fixed point should, thus, be unstable if the Harris criterion established in equilibrium systems is applicable to the nonequilibrium absorbing phase transitions of the CLG model. However, this prediction is in contradiction with recent simulation results.
