About this book. Introduction. This volume describes the current state of knowledge of random spatial processes, particularly those arising in physics. The emphasis is on survey articles which describe areas of current interest to probabilists and physicists working on the probability theory of phase transition.

From a review of the first edition: "This book [&#;] covers in depth a broad range of topics in the mathematical theory of phase transition in statistical mechanics. [&#;] It is in fact one of the author's stated aims that this comprehensive monograph should serve both as an introductory text and as a reference for the expert."Cited by:

Kluwer/Springer has kindly permitted the papers to be made available on the web MathSciNet. Phase transitions are sometimes classified by their order 2. I will start my discussion with the first-order phase transitions that feature nonvanishing latent heat Λ—the amount of heat that is necessary to give one phase in order to turn it into another phase completely, even if .   Donate to arXiv.

Ising model displays a nite temperature phase transition between a ferromagnetically ordered phase at low temperatures, and a paramagnetic phase at high temperatures.

6. Phase Transitions As you change the macroscopic variables of a system, sometimes its properties will abruptly change, often in a dramatic way. For example, it might change from a solid to a liquid, or from a liquid to a gas. These are examples of phase transitions. The goal of this chapter is to understand why phase transitions happen and.

The aim of the book is to expound a series of rigorous results about the theory of phase transitions. The book consists of four chapters, wherein the first chapter discusses the Hamiltonian, its symmetry group, and the limit Gibbs distributions corresponding to a given Hamiltonian.   We prove an inequality on decision trees on monotonic measures which generalizes the OSSS inequality on product spaces. As an application, we use this inequality to prove a number of new results on lattice spin models and their random-cluster representations. More precisely, we prove that 1.
