Abstract: Two types of surface models have been investigated by Monte Carlo simulationson triangulated spheres with compartmentalized domains. Both models are foundto undergo a first-order collapsing transition and a first-order surfacefluctuation transition. The first model is a fluid surface one. The verticescan freely diffuse only inside the compartments, and they are prohibited fromthe free diffusion over the surface due to the domain boundaries. The second isa skeleton model. The surface shape of the skeleton model is maintained only bythe domain boundaries, which are linear chains with rigid junctions. Therefore,we can conclude that the first-order transitions occur independent of whetherthe shape of surface is mechanically maintained by the skeleton (= the domainboundary) or by the surface itself.
