A lattice gas model is used to analyze certain structures consisting of parallel rows of atoms adsorbed on a surface. The interaction between rows is assumed to be attractive at short distances and repulsive at long distances. The model yields various striped domain structures, which include the long-period structures observed on the oxygen adsorbed Cu(110) surface. The phase diagram representing the stability of different structures is very complicated and seems to contain devil's staircases and upsilon points. 9834.
