Reshuffling spins with short range interactions : When sociophysics produces physical results

Galam reshuffling introduced in opinion dynamics models is investigated under the nearest neighbor Ising model on a square lattice using Monte Carlo simulations. While the corresponding Galam analytical critical temperature TC ≈ 3.09 [J/kB] is recovered almost exactly, it is proved to be different from both values, not reshuffled (TC = 2/arcsinh(1) ≈ 2.27… CONTINUE READING
