Classical physics in a spin

Simple “spin models” used to explain magnetism can precisely reproduce any possible phenomenon in classical, non-quantum physics, according to scientists at the MPQ and UCL.

This new work shows that the result holds for all of classical physics and for much simpler models. Moreover, by connect…
