  1. Hi, I'm looking for something (books or other), about Ising Model. Can anyone of you help me?
    Thank you

    Introduction to Ising model?

    There are some fine review articles and expository articles in various journals. What is your math/phy background?

    One important technique is "sampling from the past"; see the UG textbook by Olle Haggstrom, Finite Markov Chains and Algorithmic Applications, LMS Student Texts 52, Cambridge University Press, 2002.
     
  4. if you speak german, there is a good book about statistical physics:

    W.Nolting: Grundkurs Theoretische Physik 6

    you can find there about 20 p concerning the Ising-Modell
     
  5. I'm attending the second year of Specialistic degree in Physics (in Italy, I don't know the analogous in US or UK)... so I think I can understand also advanced articles (or at least, I hope...)

    Chandler's book on Stat Mech covers this extensively.
     
  7. History of the Lenz-Ising Model by Stephen G. Brush might be a good one, haven't read more than a few pages of it (for a paper) myself though.

    Computational Physics by Steven E. Koonin has a few pages on it.

    Some percolation theory books might have a page or two on the Ising model too.

    In addition, the wikipedia entry is pretty extensive if you're just looking to learn about it

    Oh, as for articles, check on arXiv, I'm sure there's some papers on there about the Ising model.
     
  8. Thank you!!!
