## Abstract

Motivated by the observation that geometrizing statistical mechanics offers an interesting alternative to more standard approaches, we calculate the scaling behavior of the curvature R of the information geometry metric for the spherical model. We find that R∼ε−2, where ε=βc−β is the distance from criticality. The discrepancy from the naively expected scaling R∼ε−3 is explained and compared with that for the Ising model on planar random graphs, which shares the same critical exponents.
