The tails of the critical order-parameter distribution of the two-dimensional Ising model are investigated through extensive multicanonical Monte Carlo simulation. Results for fixed boundary conditions are reported here, and compared with known results for periodic boundary conditions. Clear numerical evidence for “fat” stretched exponential tails exists below the critical temperature, indicating the possible presence of fat tails at the critical temperature. Our work suggests that the true order parameter distribution at the critical temperature must be considered to be unknown at present.
