**Statistical Field Theory**

by R R Horgan

**Publisher**: University of Cambridge 2010**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.
