## Abstract

We study the Glauber dynamics for the Ising model on the complete graph, also known as the Curie–Weiss Model. For β < 1, we prove that the dynamics exhibits a cut-off: the distance to stationarity drops from near 1 to near 0 in a window of order n centered at [2(1 − β)]−1 n log n. For β = 1, we prove that the mixing time is of order n 3/2. For β > 1, we study metastability. In particular, we show that the Glauber dynamics restricted to states of non-negative magnetization has mixing time O(n log n).
