Ising audification

Bild_3 Bild_2




The most direct approach in sonification is an audification, which requires a sequentialization path from the n-dimensional lattice to a 1-dimensional data stream. Then, this data stream can be played as a sound wave directly. A simple audification of such a randomized system results in noise. Still, the kind of noise gives information on the system: in the hot temperature phase , the sound is rather homogeneous. This fits the intuitive assumption that a hot system, with a lot of ‘Brownian’ movement, sounds noisy. The more clusters there are and the bigger they are, the more temporally structured and ‘unstable’ the sound becomes . When the temperature is still lowered, the audification falls silent, as one spin orientation prevails throughout the lattice at T < Tcrit.
