# A note on the metastability in three modifications of the standard Ising model

@article{Bashiri2017ANO, title={A note on the metastability in three modifications of the standard Ising model}, author={K. Bashiri}, journal={arXiv: Probability}, year={2017} }

We consider three extensions of the standard 2D Ising model with Glauber dynamics on a finite torus at low temperature. The first model is an anisotropic version, where the interaction energy takes different values on vertical and on horizontal bonds. The second model adds next-nearest-neighbor attraction to the standard Ising model. And the third model associates different alternating signs for the magnetic fields on even and odd rows. All these models have already been studied, and results… Expand
