New Homework 3.20, 3.23 Due After Break Paramagnetism

A Very Nice Overview of Paramagnetism
Scott is saying some kind of science. We will do a review of Many-Body Systems. • Review? • 1-Dimensional Eising Model So • N Particles in 3D • position • momentum • Generalized Position • Generalized Momentum • Hamiltonian ○ ○ ○ ○ Examples of Interactions • ○ Free Particles • ○ Particles interchange with external field • Spin Model • • • • • ○ Ferromagnetic • ○ Anti-Ferromagnetic
