A Pedagogical Discussion of Magnetisation in the Mean Field Ising Model.

  title={A Pedagogical Discussion of Magnetisation in the Mean Field Ising Model.},
  author={Dalton A R Sakthivadivel},
  journal={arXiv: Statistical Mechanics},
Here, a complete, pedagogical tutorial for applying mean field theory to the two-dimensional Ising model is presented. Beginning with the motivation and basis for mean field theory, we formally derive the Bogoliubov inequality and discuss mean field theory itself. We proceed with the use of mean field theory to determine Ising magnetisation, and the results of the derivation are interpreted graphically and physically. We include some more general comments on the thermodynamics of the phase… Expand

A Multiscale Model of Traumatic Brain Injury Suggests Possible Mechanisms of Post-Traumatic Psychosis
A possible mechanism for post-traumatic psychosis is evaluated, shedding light on the anomalous nature of psychosis as over-activity and brain injury as destruction, and a proof-of-principle of advanced multiscale modelling methods in computational psychiatry and neuromedicine is found. Expand
Characterising the Non-Equilibrium Dynamics of a Neural Cell
This work combines nonequilibrium statistical mechanics and dynamical systems theory to characterise the nature of the neural resting state, and its relationship to firing, which provides a multiscale model of the Neural cell, from molecules to spikes, and explains various phenomena in a unified manner.

Formalising the Use of the Activation Function in Neural Inference
It is shown that there is not only a biological meaning, but a physical justification, for the emergence and performance of canonical activation functions, and implications for neural learning and inference are also discussed. Expand


Critical behavior of the Ising model on the four-dimensional cubic lattice.
It is found that within the given accuracy the canonical ensemble data are consistent both with a logarithmic singularity and a bounded specific heat but that the microcanonical ensemble lends stronger support to a boundedspecific heat. Expand
