# On Ising's model of ferromagnetism

@article{Peierls1936OnIM, title={On Ising's model of ferromagnetism}, author={Rudolf Ernst Sir Peierls}, journal={Mathematical Proceedings of the Cambridge Philosophical Society}, year={1936}, volume={32}, pages={477 - 481} }

Ising discussed the following model of a ferromagnetic body: Assume N elementary magnets of moment μ to be arranged in a regular lattice; each of them is supposed to have only two possible orientations, which we call positive and negative. Assume further that there is an interaction energy U for each pair of neighbouring magnets of opposite direction. Further, there is an external magnetic field of magnitude H such as to produce an additional energy of − μH (+ μH) for each magnet with positive…
