Paper Abstract

The paper contains analysis of a well known Monte-Carlo crystal growth model taking into account surface diffusion. The assumptions being the basis of the model are analyzed, appraised, and modifications making them more physically acceptable are proposed. The numerical realization of surface diffusion is appraised as well, and means of its improvement are proposed. The results of the original and modified models are compared. The 'numerical roughening' effect was identified as a possible cause of roughening transition temperature uncertainty.
