By Igor Herbut

Severe phenomena is among the most fun components of contemporary physics. This 2007 publication presents a radical yet fiscal creation into the rules and strategies of the idea of severe phenomena and the renormalization staff, from the point of view of recent condensed topic physics. Assuming simple wisdom of quantum and statistical mechanics, the e-book discusses part transitions in magnets, superfluids, superconductors, and gauge box theories. specific awareness is given to issues reminiscent of gauge box fluctuations in superconductors, the Kosterlitz-Thouless transition, duality modifications, and quantum part transitions - all of that are on the vanguard of physics examine. This booklet comprises a number of difficulties of various levels of trouble, with recommendations. those difficulties offer readers with a wealth of fabric to check their knowing of the topic. it's excellent for graduate scholars and more matured researchers within the fields of condensed subject physics, statistical physics, and many-body physics.
