Thermodynamical Calculation of the Pressure and Surface Tension in Thin Liquid Films

Via 3-d Monte-Carlo Simulations we determine thermodynamic quantities such as the transverse pressure and surface tension in a lattice gas system under liquid-gas phase equilibrium conditions.

More specifically we treat composite systems of thin liquid membranes in equilibrium with their own gas. The stability of the membranes is enhanced by the presence of surfactant chains.
