*R* are studied in the context of the Sullivan model. Neither a first nor a continuous transition is found for finite *R*. Only in the strict limit of *R*→∞ a second-order transition appears. For temperatures *T* higher than the wetting temperature in a flat geometry, *T*^{∞}_{w}, the thickness *l* of the enhanced density layer, which forms on the surface of the sphere, is for large *R* proportional to In *R*.
