A Modern Approach to Critical Phenomena by Igor Herbut

By Igor Herbut

severe phenomena is without doubt one of the most fun components of contemporary physics. This 2007 ebook presents an intensive yet financial creation into the rules and strategies of the idea of severe phenomena and the renormalization workforce, from the point of view of contemporary condensed topic physics. Assuming uncomplicated wisdom of quantum and statistical mechanics, the ebook discusses part transitions in magnets, superfluids, superconductors, and gauge box theories. specific recognition is given to subject matters akin to gauge box fluctuations in superconductors, the Kosterlitz-Thouless transition, duality alterations, and quantum part transitions - all of that are on the vanguard of physics examine. This e-book comprises various difficulties of various levels of hassle, with strategies. those difficulties offer readers with a wealth of fabric to check their knowing of the topic. it truly is perfect for graduate scholars and more matured researchers within the fields of condensed subject physics, statistical physics, and many-body physics.

Suchmaschinen und Qualitätsmanagement, Versicherungen und Erdbebenvorhersagen, Verkehrsflüsse, Geheimcodes und medizinische Prognosen – die sogenannte Bayes’sche Regel ist geradezu allgegenwärtig und dennoch nur wenigen vertraut. Dabei ist sie in ihrer grundlegenden Aussage bestechend einfach: guy beginnt mit einer Vermutung und revidiert diese anhand neuer, objektiver Informationen – und gelangt so zu einer verbesserten Annahme.
