Hello, bonjour, dobar dan, goedendag, Welcome to the eighth homework session of Statistical Mechanics: Algorithms and Computations from the Phi-sics department of Ecole Normale Superieure. This week is all about Ising model. In the lecture and the tutorial, you were presented with basic numerical approaches, like the Metropolis or the heat-bath algorithm, but also with the cluster method, that goes through the space configuration with breath-taking speed this is something you must see by yourself In the tutorial, we also showed a curious coupling phenomenon where all configurations come together Again, how these configurations come together is something that you have to see by yourself and then you will make it into a perfect sampling algorithm So in this week's homework you will program cluster and coupling algorithm, or rather download run and modify the ones that we provide. So, have fun with Homework session 8 the penultimate homework session of Statistical Mehcanics: Algorithms and Computations and see you again next week.
