 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. ​
