The successful calculation of critical exponents for continuous phase transitions is one of the main achievements of theoretical physics over the last quarter-century. This was achieved through the use of scaling and field theoretic techniques which have since become standard equipment in many areas of physics, especially quantum field theory.

Continuous phase transitions are introduced, then the necessary statistical. Modern Theory of Critical Phenomena Shang-keng Ma An important contributor to our current understanding of critical phenomena, Ma introduces the beginner--especially the graduate student with no previous knowledge of the subject-to fundamental theoretical concepts such as mean field theory, the scaling hypothesis, and the renormalization group.

I was looking for a book to get started with the theory of critical phenomena step by step. I found other books - like Parisi - too advanced for my level and often too concise.

This book seems to be doing the job. Totally reccomended. Leer más. Útil/5(8). This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the theory of phase transitions and critical phenomena.

Uzunov. The aim of this book is to familiarise the reader with the rich collection of ideas, methods and results available in the theory of critical phenomena in systems with confined geometry.

The existence of universal features of the finite-size effects arising due to highly correlated classical or quantum fluctuations is explained by the finite. In physics, critical phenomena is the collective name associated with the physics of critical points.

Most of them stem from the divergence of the correlation length, but also the dynamics slows down. Critical phenomena include scaling relations among different quantities, power-law divergences of some quantities described by critical exponents, universality, fractal behaviour, and ergodicity breaking.

Modern Theory of Critical Phenomena book. Read reviews from world’s largest community for readers. An important contributor to our current understanding /5(3). The theory of critical phenomena in systems at equilibrium is reviewed at an introductory level with special emphasis on the values of the critical point exponents α, β, γ, and their by:   The book is an introduction to quantum field theory and renormalization group.

It shows that these frameworks are essential for the understanding of phenomena belonging to many different areas of physics, which range from phase transitions in macroscopic systems to the theory of fundamental interactions/5(3). Critical phenomena are related to the concept of bifurcations that we discussed when we discussed dynamical systems.

The book is subtitled: A historical introduction to the modern theory of critical phenomena. Indeed the book is deliberately written to include the actors and not just the final polished outcomes, and it is quite unique in this. The book would be well worth reading just for the historical record, and as a Cited by: The book is an introduction to quantum field theory and renormalization group.

It shows that these frameworks are essential for the understanding of phenomena belonging to many different areas of physics, which range from phase transitions in macroscopic systems to the theory .This volume links field theory methods and concepts from particle physics with those in critical phenomena and statistical mechanics, the development starting from the latter point of view.

Rigor and lengthy proofs are trimmed by using the phenomenological framework of graphs, power counting, etc., and field theoretic methods with emphasis on.
