Isotropic majority-vote model on a square lattice


The stationary critical properties of the isotropic majority vote model on a square lattice are calculated by Monte Carlo simulations and finite size analysis. The critical exponentsν, γ, andβ are found to be the same as those of the Ising model and the critical noise parameter is found to beq c =0.075±0.001.
