Scaling, polymers and spins
This chapter is concerned with some of the nonrigorous work on the selfavoiding walk: the scaling theory which leads to the scaling relations stated in Section 1.4, the connection with polymers and the derivation of the Flory values for the critical exponent v, and finally, the interpretation of the selfavoiding walk as a "zero-component" ferromagnet.
