This application provides an interface for running simulations of the Ising model of magnetically interacting spins on a 2-dimensional lattice. It is intended as a demonstration of the possibilities for interactive exploration of scientific models - the computing power available in modern machines is sufficient to perform sophisticated calculations on the fly as the parameters are changed.
Source code is also available - the application is licensed under the GPL.
