STP Ising Antiferromagnet Square Lattice Program 

written by Harvey Gould, Jan Tobochnik, Wolfgang Christian, and Anne Cox

The STP IsingAntiferromagnetSquareLattice program is a Monte Carlo simulation of the antiferromagnetic Ising model on a square lattice in equilibrium with a heat bath at temperature T where the spin interaction J is negative (antiferromagnetic Ising model). The default is a lattice of linear dimension L=32 (for a total of N=L^2 spins) with no external field and heat bath temperature T=2.269.

STP IsingAntiferromagnetSquareLattice is part of a suite of Open Source Physics programs that model aspects of Statistical and Thermal Physics (STP). The program is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the stp_IsingAntiferromagnetSquareLattice.jar file will run the program if Java is installed on your computer. Additional programs can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, STP, or Statistical and Thermal Physics.
