This book provides a thorough but economic introduction into the principles and techniques of the theory of critical phenomena and the renormalization group, from the perspective of modern condensed matter physics. A Primer to the Theory of Critical Phenomena provides scientists in academia and industry, as well as graduate students in physics, chemistry, and geochemistry with the scientific fundamentals of critical phenomena and phase transitions.

The book helps readers broaden their understanding of a field that has developed tremendously over the last forty years. This book should become an extremely valuable introduction to the renormalization group approach to critical phenomena, as developed by Wilson and others in the past few years.

It covers most of the standard material in an elegant and carefully argued fashion, and should enable the reader to tackle the latest research : H Osborn. A Historical Introduction To The Modern Theory Of Critical Phenomena. The Critical Point. DOI link for The Critical Point.

Research in this field has been extensive over the past few years and the theory has undergone rapid development following the pioneering work of Wilson () on the renormalization group (abbreviated as RG) approach to scaling.

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.

by Shang-keng MaPrice: $ An introduction into the theory of boundary critical phenomena and the application of the field-theoretical renormalization group method to these is given. The emphasis is on a discussion of surface critical behavior at bulk critical points of magnets, binary alloys, and fluids.

Yet a multitude of related phenomena are mentioned. 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 nice case study of the development of Price Range: $ - $ Abstract. The modern theories of critical phenomena are based on a variety of hypotheses, assumptions, and specific approximations which may enter a particular theory.

An introductory review of the central ideas in the modern theory of dynamic critical phenomena is followed by a more detailed account of recent developments in the field.

The concepts of the conventional theory, mode-coupling, scaling, universality, and the renormalization group are introduced and are illustrated in the context of a simple example-the phase separation of a symmetric binary fluid.

“Theory of dynamic critical phenomena,” published in in Reviews of Modern Physics, provided a summary of the status of those theories7 and promoted a classiﬁcation scheme that re-mains in use today. Two systems belonging to the same static universality class may belong to diﬀerent classes of dynamic phenomena.

The theoretical section presents reviews that cover the modern theory of critical phenomena, methods to correlate near critical experimental results and approaches to understanding the behavior of near critical fluids from microscopic theory. For surveys of the modern theory of critical phenomena, including references to the original literature, see the following reviews: K.

Wilson and J.Physics Reports 12C, No. 2 (). Google Scholar. In the s and early s, major advances occurred in the theory of critical phenomena. Important ideas that emerged included the introduction of critical exponents to describe how various static quantities diverge or go to zero as one approaches a critical point and the introduction of scaling laws, which lead to relations among the various exponents.
