Ising Model

  • Bertrand Eynard
Part of the Progress in Mathematical Physics book series (PMP, volume 70)


In statistical physics, the Ising model represents a simplified model for magnetization. Each piece of the surface (here each face of a map) carries a unit of magnetization, pointing either upward + or downward −. This can also be represented as a map with bicolored faces black/white, or + ∕−, or any other convenient choice. The color is also called the spin, worth + or −.
