.1 Second-order Phase Transitions 1.2 Critical Exponents


1 Introduction Systems containing a large number of particles exhibit a great variety of phase transitions. Most common are first-and second-order transitions. A transition is said to be first-order if the internal energy changes discontinuously at a certain temperature. Such a transition is accompanied by the release or absorption of latent heat.
