Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

First of all, sorry if my question is trivial but I'm not a physicist ;-)

I heard a lot about the Ising model used to compute the energy of a system with 2 states. This model seems to be a bit "simple" because it assumes that particles interact with their nearest neighbors only. I was wondering if they were more complicated models that would consider more complicated interactions ?
