A non-Hamiltonian formulation of the Ising chain

  • J. -P. Marchand
  • P. A. Martin


The Gibbs states of binary lattice systems can be characterized by their stability with respect to certain microscopic transitions which have a simple physical interpretation. A detailed analysis is provided for the case of a one-dimensional lattice gas with nearest-neighbor interactions.
