    Abstract

    We study the 3-state square-lattice Potts antiferromagnet at zero temperature by a Monte Carlo simulation using the Wang-Swendsen-Kotecký cluster algorithm, on lattices up to 1024 × 1024. We confirm the critical exponents predicted by Burton and Henley based on the height representation of this model.
