Ising solved the one-dimensional model, ..., and on the basis of the fact that the one-dimensional model had no phase transition, he asserted that there was no phase transition in any dimension.

The Ising model Ferromagnetism arises when a collection of atomic spins align such that their associated magnetic moments all point in the same direction, yielding a net magnetic moment which is macroscopic in size.
