We investigate the crumpling transition for a random surface embedded in two dimensions using an effective model on a fixed triangulation in which the effect of the X variables on the correlations of the normals is replaced by a long-range "anticorrelating" term. We compare the results from a Monte Carlo simulation with those obtained for the standard action which retains the X's and discuss the nature of the phase transition. © 1992 The American Physical Society.
