Abstract

A model of the properties of a ferrofluid containing weakly interacting particles is presented. The model is based on the Monte-Carlo method, and is used to study the effects of interactions on the magnetisation curve. It is shown that the effect of interactions is to enhance the magnetisation curve to a degree dependent on the magnetic field.
