Dr. Ernest Ising was Professor of Physics at Bradley from 1948-1976 and Professor Emeritus until his death. Dr. Ising is recognized in the worldwide scientific community for his development of the Ising Model. He and his wife, Dr. Jane Ehmer Ising, established the Ising Scholarship for physics students at Bradley University in 1985.
(Phys.org)—A pair of physicists has shown that it is possible to transform disparate spin models into different types of just one simple model. In their paper published in the journal Science, Gemma De las Cuevas, with the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics and Toby Cubitt, with University College London, offer a proof to show that any spin model can be converted to the relatively simple Ising model. Stephanie Wehner with QuTech, Delft University of Technology offers a Perspectives…
Lars Onsager (1903 – 1976) was a Norwegian-born American physical chemist and theoretical physicist. He was the winner of the 1968 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. In 1929 he introduced the Onsager reciprocal relations whose importance went unrecognized for many years.. Also, Onsager studied the statistical-mechanical theory of phase transitions, deriving a mathematically elegant theory which was enthusiastically received. He obtained the exact solution for the two dimensional Ising model in 1944.
