STP Ising Partition Function 

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

The STP IsingPartitionFunction program is a Monte Carlo calculation of the partition function Z of the two-dimensional Ising model in equilibrium with a heat bath at temperature T. The default is a lattice of linear dimension L=32 (for a total of N=L^2 spins).

STP IsingPartitionFunction 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_IsingPartitionFunction.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.
