A note on wetting transition for gradient fields

Caputo, P.
Published in Stochastic Processes and Their Applications. 2000, vol. 87, no. 1, p. 107-113
Abstract We prove existence of a wetting transition for two classes of gradient fields which include: (1) The Continuous SOS model in any dimension and (2) The massless Gaussian model in dimension 2. Combined with a recent result proving the absence of such a transition for Gaussian models above 2 dimensions (Bolthausen et al., 2000.) J. Math. Phys. to appear), this shows in particular that absolute-value and quadratic interactions can give rise to completely different behavior.
