  • The Curie–Weiss model is an exactly solvable model of ferromagnetism that allows one to study thermodynamic functions in detail, in particular their properties near the critical temperature. In this model every magnetic moment interacts with every other magnetic moment. Because of its simplicity and the correctness of at least some of its predictions, the Curie–Weiss model occupies an important place in the statistical mechanics literature and its application to information theory. It is… CONTINUE READING
