Phase transitions and critical phenomena by Cyril Domb ( Book )
83 editions published between 1972 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 1,004 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The field of phase transitions and critical phenomena continues to be active in research, producing a steady stream of interesting and fruitful results. It has moved into a central place in condensed matter studies. Statistical physics, and more specifically, the theory of transitions between states of matter, more or less defines what we know about 'everyday' matter and its transformations. The major aim of this serial is to provide review articles that can serve as standard references for research workers in the field, and for graduate students and others wishing to obtain reliable information on important recent developments

The critical point : a historical introduction to the modern theory of critical phenomena by Cyril Domb ( Book )
10 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The relationship between liquids and gases engaged the attention of a number of distinguished scientists in the mid 19th Century. In a definitive paper published in 1869, Thomas Andrews described experiments he performed on carbon dioxide and from which he concluded that a critical temperature exists below which liquids and gases are distinct phases of matter, but above which they merge into a single fluid phase. During the years which followed, other natural phenomena were discovered to which the same critical point description can be applied - such as ferromagnetism and solutions. This book provides an historical account of theoretical explanations of critical phenomena which ultimately led to a major triumph of statistical mechanics in the 20th Century - with the award of the Nobel Prize for Physics

Statistical mechanics of driven diffusive systems by B Schmittmann ( Book )
6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Far-from-equilibrium phenomena, while abundant in nature, are not nearly as well understood as their equilibrium counterparts. On the theoretical side, progress is slowed by the lack of a simple framework, such as the Boltzmann-Gbbs paradigm in the case of equilibrium thermodynamics. On the experimental side, the enormous structural complexity of real systems poses serious obstacles to comprehension. Similar difficulties have been overcome in equilibrium statistical mechanics by focusing on model systems. Even if they seem too simplistic for known physical systems, models give us considerable insight, provided they capture the essential physics. They serve as important theoretical testing grounds where the relationship between the generic physical behavior and the key ingredients of a successful theory can be identified and understood in detail. Within the vast realm of non-equilibrium physics, driven diffusive systems form a subset with particularly interesting properties. As a prototype model for these systems, the driven lattice gas was introduced roughly a decade ago. Since then, a number of surprising phenomena have been discovered including singular correlations at generic temperatures, as well as novel phase transitions, universality classes, and interfacial instabilities. This book summarizes current knowledge on driven systems, from apedagogical discussion of the original driven lattice gas to a brief survey of related models. Given that the topic is far from closed, much emphasis is placed on detailing open questions and unsolved problems as an incentive for the reader to pursue thesubject further.

Phase transitions and critical phenomena by Cyril Domb ( Book )
8 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The field of phase transitions and critical phenomena continues to be active in research, producing a steady stream of interesting and fruitful results. No longer an area of specialist interest, it has acquired a central focus in condensed matter studies. The major aim of this serial is to provide review articles that can serve as standard references for research workers in the field, and for graduate students and others wishing to obtain reliable information on important recent developments. The two review articles in this volume complement each other in a remarkable way. Both deal with what might be called the modern geometric approach to the properties of macroscopic systems. The first article by Georgii (et al.) describes how recent advances in the application of geometric ideas leads to a better understanding of pure phases and phase transitions in equilibrium systems. The second article by Alava (et al.) deals with geometrical aspects of multi-body systems in a hands-on way, going beyond abstract theory to obtain practical answers.; The combination of computers and geometrical ideas described in this volume will doubtless play a major role in the development of statistical mechanics in the twenty-first century
