Unformatted text preview: around and interact with spins on the other side of the array (periodic boundary conditions). If you start with spins in a random alignment, what is the behavior of the spins as a function of the strength of the external field, B/lambda? Can you figure out how to include the effects of temperature? This is the Ising model of a magnetic material....
