Mean-Field Theory 5.1 Mean-Field Treatments of the Ising Model In this Section, we are discussing various approaches to obtain a mean-ﬁeld solu-tion to the Ising model. In physics and probability theory, mean-field theory (aka MFT or rarely self-consistent field theory) studies the behavior of high-dimensional random models by studying a simpler model that approximates the original by averaging over degrees of freedom.Such models consider many individual components that interact with each other.
