Abstract
Recent heat-capacity experiments show quite unambiguously the existence of a liquid He-3 phase adsorbed on graphite. This liquid is stable at an extremely low density, possibly one of the lowest found in nature. Previous theoretical calculations of the same system, and in strictly two dimensions, agree with the result that this liquid phase is not stable and the system is in the gas phase. We calculated the phase diagram of normal He-3 adsorbed on graphite at T = 0 using quantum Monte Carlo meth...
