about

A Primer to the Theory of Critical Phenomenaprovides scientists in academia and industry, as well as graduate students in physics, chemistry, and geochemistry with the scientific fundamentals of critical phenomena and phase transitions. The book helps readers broaden their understanding of a field that has developed tremendously over the last forty years. The book also makes a great resource for graduate level instructors at universities.



  • Provides a thorough and accessible treatment of the fundamentals of critical phenomena
  • Offers an in-depth exposition on renormalization and field theory techniques
  • Includes experimental observations of critical effects
  • Includes live examples illustrating the applications of the theoretical material

About The Author

Prof. Honig received a BS degree from Amherst College in 1945 and a PhD degree from the University of Minnesota in 1952. After a postdoctoral appointment year at the James Forrestal Center of Princeton University in 1953, he joined the Department of Chemistry at Purdue University in 1953, and was promoted to Associate Professor in 1958...
