Abstract/Media

The Ising model is an archetypical model of order-disorder phase transition: though simple to formulate, it exhibits a complex behavior, much like the real-world phenomena in solid-state physics, ferromagnetism, chemistry, biology, computer science.  We will give a historical introduction, leading to more recent results about the 2D case, which allows a very detailed analysis.
