We employ canonical Monte Carlo simulations to explore the properties of an Ar film adsorbed on the external surface of a bundle of carbon nanotubes. The study is concerned primarily with three properties: specific heat c(T), differential heat of adsorption qd, and Ar-Ar correlation functions g(r). These measurable functions exhibit information about the dependence of film structure on coverage and temperature.
