Questions tagged [ising-model]

The Ising model of ferromagnetism in statistical mechanics consists of discrete bimodal (+1 or −1) "spin" (moment) variables in a simple Hamiltonian interacting with their next neighbors on a lattice. The one-dimensional variant does not evince a phase transition, but the two-dimensional square-lattice one does. Use for analog and generalized discrete models on several lattices and dimensions.
