The first part of the lecture gives an outlook of the main aspects of the mathematical theory of the Ising model. The existance and differentiability of the infinite volume free energy density, including the properties connected with the LeeYang theorem, are discussed. Then the equilibrium state of the model as a probability measure on the space of configurations is introduced, a number of its properties are described. In particular, the nonuniqueness/ phase transitions properties are discussed on the base of Dobrushin’s criterium, as well as of the Lebowitz/MartinLoef analitidty results. In the second part of the lectme, the above scheme is applied to the Ising model with a transverse field (De Gennes model), which contains noncomutative operators. Here the Euclidean approach, hi which quantum states are represented by probability measures, is employed.
