About this book

This book addresses the application of methods used in statistical physics to complex systems—from simple phenomenological analogies to more complex aspects, such as correlations, fluctuation-dissipation theorem, the concept of free energy, renormalization group approach and scaling. Statistical physics contains a well-developed formalism that describes phase transitions. It is useful to apply this formalism for damage phenomena as well. Fractals, the Ising model, percolation, damage mechanics, fluctuations, free energy formalism, renormalization group, and scaling, are some of the topics covered in Statistical Physics of Phase Transitions.

Reviews

“The present book in which one shows that fractals are pervasive everywhere in the Ising model, percolation, damage phenomena, renormalization group and scaling. … The chapters are almost self-containing. It is a nice book quite suitable for a personal library.” (Guy Jumarie, zbMATH, Vol.1325.82001, 2015)
