2-Dimensional Frustration Modeling
Computational frustration modeling can be used to study systems such as spin glasses and cuprate vortex states. Frustration is due to competing and random interactions. Our general model can be mapped into a harmonic-oscillator model or an Ising model. Monte Carlo simulations are used to study frustration relaxation in a 2-dimensional lattice.
