I've been reading through some of the literature on solutions of the Ising model, but I can't help but notice it doesn't provide that good a model for actual ferromagnetic systems. It seems that these models get a lot of attention and I'm just curious as to why? Also, why is an exact solution to the 3D Ising model so sought after, and what do people hope to learn from it?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm a bit naive on the subject, so I was just hoping someone could help me get a better understanding.
