Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Results of theoretical studies of spatially confined systems via Monte Carlo simulations are reported. Three experimentally relevant systems are considered: 1) Ad- and desorption phenomena in nanoporous materials like Vycor glass; 2) Dipolar molecules on a graphite surface that undergo an orientational transition; 3) Non-equilibrium dynamics in twodimensional disordered materials.
