Physicists use magnetism simulation software to model US presidential elections

(Phys.org) —A team of physicists working at IFISC in Palma de Mallorca, Spain has used a computer simulation originally designed to model the transition of iron between magnetized states to create a model to do something similar for voting patterns in the United States. In their paper published in Physical Review Letters, the team describes how they used factors of influence by interactions between voters to create a model that accurately predicted how influenced voters would vote.
