A thoroughly modern graduate-level introduction to the theory of critical behaviour. Covers phase transitions, mean field theory, phase diagrams, fixed points, cross-over behaviour, finite-size scaling, a simple approach to the epsilon expansion, low-dimensional systems, surface critical behaviour, random systems, percolation, polymer statistics, critical dynamics and conformal symmetry. Includes many problems.In the previous chapter, the ferromagnetic Ising model provided a simple example of a phase diagram with an associated fixed point structure of the renormalization group flows. There were stable fixed points corresponding to low and highanbsp;...
