  • A new approach for carrying out static Monte Carlo calculations of thermodynamic quantities for classical spin systems is proposed. Combining the ideas of coincidence countings and importance samplings, the authors formulate a scheme for obtaining /Gamma/(E), the number of states for a fixed energy E, and use /Gamma/(E) to compute thermodynamic properties. Using the Ising model as an example, they demonstrate that the procedure leads to accurate numerical results without excessive use of computer time. They also show that the procedure is easily extended to obtaining magnetic properties of the Ising model.

  • We present a general derivation of the electron spin noise power spectrum in alkali gases as measured by optical Faraday rotation, which applies to both classical gases at high temperatures as well as ultracold quantum gases. We show that the spin-noise power spectrum is determined by an electron spin-spin correlation function, and we find that measurements of the spin-noise power spectra for a classical gas of {sup 41}K atoms are in good agreement with the predicted values. Experimental and theoretical spin noise spectra are directly and quantitatively compared in both longitudinal and transverse magnetic fields up to the high magnetic-fieldmore » regime (where Zeeman energies exceed the intrinsic hyperfine energy splitting of the {sup 41}K ground state)« less
  • A classical system enclosed in a finite volume and affected by external forces is treated in a general way. The main results are partly applicable to solids as well as to fluids. Exact integral equations are found for the one- and two-particle distribution frnctions. Some thermodynamic functions are expressed in terms of these distribution functions. It is shown that there exist variational principles, which require that the grand partition function is at a maximum with respect to the variations in the one- and twoparticle distribntion functions. Variational principles are found also for the Helruholtz free energy. It is suggested thatmore » Mayer's theory of condensation may give the end point of the metastable gaseous state. It is pointed out that a hyper-netted chain approximation has a meaning in solids as well as in fluids. (auth)« less
