Statistical field theory : an introduction to exactly solved models in statistical physics
Oxford ; New York : Oxford University Press, 2010.
Includes bibliographical references and index.
This book provides a thorough introduction to the fascinating world of phase transitions as well as many related topics, including random walks, combinatorial problems, quantum field theory and S-matrix. Fundamental concepts of phase transitions, such as order parameters, spontaneous symmetry breaking, scaling transformations, conformal symmetry, and anomalous dimensions, have deeply changed the modern vision of many areas of physics, leading to remarkable developments instatistical mechanics, elementary particle theory, condensed matter physics and string theory. This self-contained book prov.
