The Ising model is the simplest model with a critical point and thus ideal to understand notions like [[advanced_notions:critical_exponent|critical exponents]] and the [[advanced_tools:renormalization_group|renormalization group]] in a simplified setup. | The Ising model is the simplest model with a critical point and thus ideal to understand notions like [[advanced_notions:critical_exponent|critical exponents]] and the [[advanced_tools:renormalization_group|renormalization group]] in a simplified setup. | ||
