Publisher Synopsis

From the reviews: "The Self-Avoiding Walk is a reprint of the original 1993 edition and is part of the Modern Birkhauser Classics series. It provides numerous theorems and their proofs. It was complete for its time, with 237 items in its list of references; since then one large outstanding conjecture has been verified but the basics remain unchanged. ... if you want to know anything about self-avoiding walks, it is the place to look first."
