Phase Transitions and the Renormalization Group

PHY 535

Info tab content
A graduate level introduction to the physics of phase transitions, critical phenomena and the renormalizaton group, which play a vital role in our understanding of various physical systems, from the universe to elementary particles to transitions between different phases of matter. This course, concentrating on such phase transitions, offers interested graduate students an introduction to the field, the basic principles, like universality and symmetry, and detailed description of the mathematical methodology, with emphasis on the renormalization group.
