There is also a discussion in "Statistical Mechanics of Phase Transitions", by J. Understanding these fluctuations ("critical phenomena") was a major achievement of late 20th century theoretical physics. Introduction aux methodes de theorie des champs en mecanique statistique (Jussieu lectures 1992). Language: English Released: 1992. In second order transitions, you can get big fluctuations in the order of the system near the transition. GO Lectures on phase transitions and critical phenomena. Particularly, people studied the low temperature, quantum critical systems near critical point (see, e.g., [4, 5] and references therein). Introduction to Phase Transitions and Critical Phenomena. Author: Nigel Goldenfeld Type: eBook. Publisher: Westview Press Page Count: 408. Here is what I would like to cover, in just 12 lectures: Gibbs free energy; First-order phase transitions; Thermodynamics of mixing; Chemical equilibrium; Continuous phase transitions and critical phenomena. This is my understanding of the situation, as explained for example in "Lectures on Phase Transitions and the Renormalization Group", by N. High Tc superconductors and related transition metal oxides.
