Logo for Applet for Simulating Spin Systems
This is a simple Ising-type model written in Java. It simulates a system of spins located on the grid points of a lattice. The spins are coupled to a heat bath witha temperature T = 1 / beta. This applet then updates the spins on the lattice in order to simulate the behavior of the spins for a given temperature. You can adjust the size of the lattice by changing the values in the upper left corner of the window. The spins have a fixed length set to 1. You can choose the number of spin... More
