    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Consider the transverse field Ising model, with


    I have to calculate the magnetization $$\langle\sigma_z\rangle$$ at finite temperature.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I have to say, I'm a bit lost.

    Classical or quantum? If classical, have you seen the transfer matrix solution of the regular Ising model?

    If this is the quantum Ising chain, the only method I know to solve this is quite involved, and involves Jordan-Wigner and Bogoliubov transforms. If this is homework I would guess you would've been given more info for how to solve it.
