Post's "Ising model" thumbnail

Ising model is a generalized mathematical model of feromagnetism in statistical physics. In this model particles having magnetic spin are put inside vertices of graph. In general case structure of graph can vary alot, but in the ussuall case selection is limited to the lattices of different dimensions. Behavior of such system is observed at different temperature in the quest to find critical temperature at which phase shift occurs. If you want to familarize yourself more with Ising model and it’s various interpretations, you should read [1, 2] works, because in this text we will only consider one possible, numerical, algorithm – heat bath algorithm.
