Tutorial 8: Ising model - Heat bath algorithm, coupling of Markov chains

Course video 23 of 29

In Week 8 we come back to classical physics, and in particular to the Ising model, which captures the essential physics of a set of magnetic spins. This is also a fundamental model for the development of sampling algorithms, and we will see different approaches at work: A local algorithm, the very efficient cluster algorithms, the heat-bath algorithm and its connection with coupling. All of these will be revisited in the homework session, where you will get a precise control over the transition between ordered and disordered states.
