Summary, in English

From a finite-size scaling (FSS) theory of cumulants of the order parameter at phase-coexistence points, we reconstruct the scaling of the moments. Assuming that the cumulants allow a reconstruction of the free energy density no better than as an asymptotic expansion, we find that FSS for moments of low order is still complete. We suggest ways of using this theory for the analysis of numerical simulations. We test these methods numerically through the scaling of cumulants and moments of the magnetisation in the low-temperature phase of the two-dimensional Ising model.
