The Monte Carlo analysis for the magnetic response of a single-walled nanotube using the Metropolis and Wang-Landau algorithms is reported in the present paper. The nanotube architecture used in the present study utilizes the spin half Ising model with nearest neighbors interaction and obtained various magnetic orderings, namely ferromagnetic, G-type anti-ferromagnetic, A-type anti-ferromagnetic, and C-type anti-ferromagnetic. It is also found that the phase changes from ferromagnetic/anti-ferromagnetic to paramagnetic with the modification of system’s control parameters. The transition temperatures is determined for various interaction strength in the absence of magnetic field and for fixed interaction strength with the inclusion of external magnetic field. The present study confirms the transition from ferromagnetic/anti-ferromagnetic to paramagnetic is a second-order transition.
