A configura tion (state) is specified by specifying the values of all spin variables S 1 ,... ,S N . The energy of a configuration is given by E ( S 1 ,...,S N ) = J N summationdisplay i =1 S i S i +1 h N summationdisplay i =1 S i , (1) where S N +1 S 1 (periodic boundary condition), J &gt; 0 is the coupling constant (ferromagnetic), and h is the magnetic field (positive or negative, in units of energy). The magnetization of the system at temperature T and magnetic field h is given by M ( T,h ) = (Bigg N summationdisplay i =1...
