serious phenomena is without doubt one of the most enjoyable components of recent physics. This 2007 publication presents a radical yet fiscal advent into the foundations and methods of the idea of severe phenomena and the renormalization team, from the viewpoint of recent condensed topic physics. Assuming easy wisdom of quantum and statistical mechanics, the booklet discusses part transitions in magnets, superfluids, superconductors, and gauge box theories. specific recognition is given to issues akin to gauge box fluctuations in superconductors, the Kosterlitz-Thouless transition, duality ameliorations, and quantum section transitions - all of that are on the leading edge of physics learn. This publication includes a number of difficulties of various levels of hassle, with suggestions. those difficulties offer readers with a wealth of fabric to check their knowing of the topic. it truly is excellent for graduate scholars and more matured researchers within the fields of condensed topic physics, statistical physics, and many-body physics.
