Monte Carlo simulations of the Ising model on a square lattice with random Gaussian interactions

Robert Gębarowski


The paper shows Monte Carlo simulations of the Ising model on a square lattice with no external magnetic field. In particular, the uncertainty of the spin coupling interactions in the Ising model has been considered. The influence on the phase transition of the Gaussian noise in the spin coupling values has been demonstrated.
