The algorithm[change | change source]
- Choose a particle at random.
- Sum its four neighboring spins. .
- Compute the change in energy if the spin x, y were to flip. This is (see the Hamiltonian for the Ising model).
- If flip the spin. That is if flipping reduces the energy, then do it.
- Else flip the spin with probability where T is the temperature.
- Display the new grid. Repeat the above N times.
This tries to approximate how the spins change over time. The fancy term is that it is part of nonequilibrium statistical mechanics, which roughly studies the time-dependent behavior of statistical mechanics.
