Abstract

The phase behavior of a Biroli-Mezard model on the two dimensional square lattice in which hard-core particles can have at most three nearest neighboring occupied sites is investigated by means of grand-canonical Monte Carlo simulations. Finite-size scaling analysis of relevant thermodynamic quantities obtained via the histogram reweighting technique reveals that at high-density, the model undergoes a first-order phase transition with preferential sublattice occupation to a crystal phase with enantiomorph ground state configurations, in close analogy to the hard-core lattice gas with the exclusion range extended up to the third shell of nearest neighbors.& nbsp;Published under an exclusive license by AIP Publishing.
