About this book

Introduction

The physics of phase transitions is an important area at the crossroads of several fields that play central roles in materials sciences. This work deals with broad classes of phase transitions in fluids and solids. It contains chapters on evaporation, melting, solidification, magnetic transitions, critical phenomena, superconductivity, etc., and is intended for graduate students in physics and engineering; for scientists it will serve both as an introduction and an overview. End-of-chapter problems and complete answers are included.
