**Introduction to the Field Theory of Classical and Quantum Phase Transitions**

by Flavio S. Nogueira

**Publisher**: arXiv 2010**Number of pages**: 178

**Description**:

These lecture notes provide a relatively self-contained introduction to field theoretic methods employed in the study of classical and quantum phase transitions. Classical phase transitions occur at a regime where quantum fluctuations do not play an important role, usually at high enough temperatures.
