Summary. This chapter describes the visualization of three-dimensional classical
vector spins with the AViz atomistic visualization package.
1.1 Introduction
Ising models on a regular lattice with two di erent states are conceptually
trivial to visualize - a simple 0,1 representation using 0 for one state and
1 for the other conveys the physics quite accurately, especially in two di-
mensions. Such a scheme could be (and often has been) implemented for
two-dimensional systems even without a graphical screen. Three-dimensional
Ising spin systems do require some minimal graphical capabilities, although
any object that has two di erent shapes or can be presented in two di erent
