The transverse field Ising model in one dimension is the drosophila of spin systems and their phase transitions. I'll discuss the solution presented by Pfeuty (Ann.Phys.(N.Y.) 57, 79 (1970)), also referring to the underlying works (Ann.Phys.(N.Y.) 16 , 407(1961)). The topic (including many details) may already be known to many, however, the terms, in which the mathematical approach was phrased may still be interesting.
