Main Document

STP XY Model Program 

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

The STP XY Model program implements a Monte Carlo simulation of the planar ferromagnet or XY Model of spins on a lattice. The simulation returns the configuration of spins with the option of showing the vortices. The default system is a lattice of linear dimension L = 20 at temperature T = 0.89.

STP XYModel 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_XYModel.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.
