This ebook is the 3rd quantity of assessment papers on complex difficulties of part transitions and important phenomena, following the good fortune of the 1st volumes in 2004 and in 2007. commonly, the booklet goals to illustrate that the part transition concept, which skilled its ‘golden age’ in the course of the 70s and 80s, is way from over and there's nonetheless a great deal of paintings to be performed, either on the basic point and in recognize of applications.
This quantity provides a extensive spectrum of difficulties attached with criticality. It covers its theoretical backgrounds, analytical ways and numerical simulations to explain criticality in particular platforms (ionic fluids, diluted magnets, polymers), in addition to section transitions on complicated networks and within the minority video game version. because the first volumes, this booklet is predicated at the overview lectures that got in Lviv (Ukraine) on the “Ising lectures” — a standard annual workshop on section transitions and important phenomena which brings jointly scientists operating within the box with college scholars and people who have an interest within the subject.
