This is a two part lecture in which we discuss the spin-spin correlation function for the the Ising model, correlation lengths, and critical slowing down. An in-class simulation of the 2D Ising Model is performed using the tool "Berkeley Computational Nanoscience Class Tools". We look at domain wall formation at low temperature, and the phase transition for the anti-ferromagnetic and ferromagnetic system.
