### NP-completeness of Ising model [migrated]

In this paper:
http://www.brown.edu/Research/Istrail_Lab/papers/p87-istrail.pdf
It is claimed that calculating partition function of 3 dimensional ising model is NP-complete. But I have a question, ...

### Ising model: probability of a long path of minus under plus boundary conditions

Consider for example the Ising model on a square lattice. Fix zero magnetic field and plus boundary conditions.
Low temperature, one minus spin. With a Peierls argument one can prove that, given a ...

### 2d Ising model in conformal fields theory and statistical mechanics

I am not completely sure that this question is appropriate for this mathematical site. But since in the past I did get on MO couple of times nice answers to rather physical questions, I will try. ...

### Elementary proof of lack of phase transition in Ising models with external fields

I have a question about the phase transitions in the Ising model in the presence of a (constant) external magnetic field. I will state the question on $\mathbb Z^2$ for simplicity. A definition of the ...

### Uniqueness of Gibbs Measure on Ising model

If I understood this correctly, the Gibbs Specification for the Ising model on $ℤ^d$ dos not have a unique Gibbs Measure for β above the critical level. But what about the Ising model on a finite ...

### Hubbard-Stratonovich Transformation

Hello,
The Hubbard-Stratonovich transformation
$\exp(x^2) = \frac{1}{\sqrt{4 \pi}} \int_{-\infty}^{+\infty} du \exp(-\frac{u^2}{4} - xu)$
allows one to wirte the exponential of a the square of a ...

### Ising model - phase transition vs rapid mixing

Consider a graph $G=(V,E)$ and Ising model on that graph, i.e. configuration space is $\Omega=${$-1,+1$}$^V$ and energy of a configuration $s \in \Omega$ is given by:
$H(s) = -\beta \sum_{u \sim ...

### Ising model on a cycle

The Ising model on $\mathbb{Z} / 2d\mathbb{Z}$ gives to the configuration $x=(x_0, \ldots, x_{2d-1}) \in \{-1,+1\}^{2d}$ a probability proportional to $\exp\\big(\beta \sum_i x_ix_{i+1} \\big)$. The ...

### Ising entropy of a finite L_1 x L_2 lattice

We know the entropy per site of the 2-d Ising model from Onsager's solution.
Has anybody also calculated the entropy for a finite rectangle of size L_1 x L_2
with periodic boundary conditions (i.e. on ...

### Entropy of the Ising model

Consider the standard Ising model on $[0,N]^2$ for $N$ large. By that I mean the square-lattice Ising model without external field, inside an $N$-by-$N$ square. What is its entropy for $N$ large? It ...
