# Exact sampling from non-attractive distributions using summary states

### Thermodynamic plots

Exact sampling from the Boltzmann distribution of a spin system allows us to
calculate thermodynamic quantities — for example, the mean *energy
per
spin*,
the mean *magnetization fraction*,
and the *heat capacity*,
Angle brackets denote ensemble averages.
Using exact sampling of a 63^{2}=3969 spin Ising system on a
triangular lattice, we computed these quantities as a function of
temperature. Plots are in EPS format.
