Statistical Field Theory
by

Publisher: University of Cambridge
Number of pages: 75

Description:
These notes are concerned with the physics of phase transitions: the phenomenon that in particular environments, quantified by particular values of external parameters such as temperature, magnetic field etc., many systems exhibit singularities in the thermodynamic variables which best describe the macroscopic state of the system.
