Additional Information

Book Details


Quantitative Theory of Critical Phenomena details in a self-contained manner the most popular and extensively practiced methods for the quantitative study of critical phenomena.
The text is divided into three parts. Part I deals with the general theory of critical phenomena — its thermodynamic aspects, statistical mechanical framework, classical model, and inequalities. Part II tackles the combinatorial theory of series generation. Part III covers the quantitative analysis of series expansions, which includes topics such as the complex variable theory, the algebraic aspects and numerical evaluation of Padé approximants, and special continuation methods.
The book is recommended for mathematicians and physicists who would like to know more about critical phenomena, its theories, and the methods for its quantitative study.
