The Ising partition function for 2D grids with periodic boundary: Computation and analysis

2002 (English)In: Journal of statistical physics, ISSN 0022-4715, E-ISSN 1572-9613, Vol. 108, no 04-mar, 429-457 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

The Ising partition function for a graph counts the number of bipartitions of the vertices with given sizes, with a given size of the induced edge cut. Expressed as a 2-variable generating function it is easily translatable into the corresponding partition function studied in statistical physics. In the current paper a comparatively efficient transfer matrix method is described for computing the generating function for the nxn grid with periodic boundary. We have applied the method to up to the 15 x 15 grid, in total 225 vertices. We examine the phase transition that takes place when the edge cut reaches a certain critical size. From the physical partition function we extract quantities such as magnetisation and susceptibility and study their asymptotic behaviour at the critical temperature.
