The STP Hysteresis program is a Monte Carlo simulation of a two-dimensional Ising model demonstrating that the magnetization does not immediately change when the external magnetic field is changed. The default is a lattice of linear dimension L=32 (for a total of N=L^2 spins), a temperature T=1.8 and an external field that changes from H=1 to H=-1 and then returns to its original value.

STP Hysteresis 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_Hysteresis.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.
