# Ising ferromagnet with quenched impurities

## Abstract

Using the Monte Carlo technique the authors have studied a two-dimensional Ising model with quenched non-magnetic impurities. In particular they calculated the temperature dependence of the order parameter, of the zero-field susceptibility and of the specific heat. These results indicate that a second-order phase transition is preserved for p>or=0.9 where 1-p denotes the concentration of randomly distributed non-magnetic sites. Moreover, they yield beta approximately=1/8 and gamma approximately=7/4, indicating that these exponents equal the corresponding ones for the pure Ising model.
