Sofort lieferbar | Versandkostenfrei
An introductory account of the theory of phase transitions and critical phenomena, this book reflects lectures given by the authors to graduate students at their departments and is thus classroom-tested to help beginners enter the field. Problem sets are included, with solutions given at the end of the book.

1: Phase transitions and critical phenomena; 2: Mean-field theories; 3: Renormalization group and scaling; 4: Implementation of the renormalization group; 5: Field theory; 6: Conformal field theory; 7: Kosterlitz-Thouless transition; 8: Random systems; 9: Exact solutions and related topics; 10: Duality; 11: Numerical methods; Appendix: Solutions to exercises
As an introductory account of the theory of phase transitions and critical phenomena, this book reflects lectures given by the authors to graduate students at their departments and is thus classroom-tested to help beginners enter the field. Most parts are written as self-contained units and every new concept or calculation is explained in detail without assuming prior knowledge of the subject. The book significantly enhances and revises a Japanese version which is abestseller in the Japanese market and is considered a standard textbook in the field. It contains new pedagogical presentations of field theory methods, including a chapter on conformal field theory, and various modern developments hard to find in a single textbook on phase transitions. Exercises
are presented as the topics develop, with solutions found at the end of the book, making the text useful for self-teaching, as well as for classroom learning.
