I'm stuck with Origin 6.0 which, incidentally, sucks donkey balls.

I'm not really a computer geek, I'm a physicist, but we occasionally have to program for data analysis and things.

Of course, when J1 is greater than ~75 K, it all goes to shite.

# Magnetism
It describes the energy levels in two systems I'm investigating. One has four copper atoms and has six energy states, which Origin 6 pro can deal with on a decent computer. The other has four mixed-valence manganese atoms and has 110 energy states, which make Origin shut down without a chance to save your work.
Crappy.

# Pretty big napkin...
Of course, when you've worked out each energy level, you have to input each one into the Van Vleck-Dirac-Heisenberg equation to calculate the susceptibility.
which is just what I was saying to the vicar the other day...
