Ising Model Monte Carlo - interpretations

    Ising Model Monte Carlo -- interpretations


    I am trying to solve and understand the classical Ising Model through a classical Monte Carlo simulation. I notice that if I begin with a ferromagnetic initial state, then the magnetization is more or less constant for a wide range of temperatures before it suddenly begins to drop near the critical (Curie) temperature. Why is this saturation observed at low temperatures in the simulation? It is almost as if the system rejects an increase in temperature by maintaining the magnetization.

    Thanks in advance!
