Monte-Carlo simulations of the phase transition in the q = 3 Potts model a generalization of the Ising model. Just the same thermostat algorithm, chess-board order, linear congruential random numbers are used. Spins (magnets) take 3 values marked by the red, green, blue pixels. Interection energy is 1 if two spins have the same direction and 0 otherwise. It is likely that magnetic phase transition takes place at Tc = 1. Temperature T = 0.9 < Tc is low therefore "hot" (random) spins are frozen in correlated clusters. Drag "thermometer" to the right to change T. 1024x1024 lattice.
