Abstract

We prove cluster properties of the spatially inhomogeneous Gibbs states in symmetric two component lattice systems obtained at large (equal) values of the fugacity. We also prove that the surface tension of these systems is given by an integral over the density variation in this state; Gibbs' formula. An alternative formula for the surface tension is also derived.
