Abstract: We explore the thermodynamics of the 2-D Ising model from a random path sampling method. We show how convergence of free energy and magnetization is obtained in a number of sweeps orders of magnitude below the number of total configurations. The effects of external parameters, such as magnetic field (H) and temperature (T) are accounted in a computationally simple way, allowing very detailed (H, T)-dependent calculations. The effects of more complex interactions can also be considered, particularly magnetovolume coupling, which has proven to be difficult to tackle using traditional approaches. We show its effect on magnetic entropy change (magnetocaloric effect) in this microscopic scenario. As magnetic refrigeration technology matures, the microscopic optimization of magnetovolume effects to enhance the magnetocaloric properties may become a valuable tool in the search of new magnetic refrigerants.
