written by Harvey Gould, Jan Tobochnik, Wolfgang Christian, and Anne Cox
The STP IsingLatticeGas program is a Monte Carlo simulation of a two-dimensional lattice gas with two halves at different chemical potentials to show diffusive equilibrium. The default is a grid of linear dimension L=32 (for a total of N=L^2 particles) and temperature T=1. The left side has a chemical potential of -1 and particle density of 0.2, and the right side has a chemical potential of -2 and a particle density of 0.04.
STP IsingLatticeGas 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_IsingLatticeGas.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.
Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.5 of Java.
