Phase Transitions and Critical Phenomena

    Phase Transitions and Critical Phenomena!!

    First 2 questions are not mathematical questions.So if there is someone who knows about what im talking about i would be glad to hear the answers.

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    (a) What is a renormalization-group transformation?
    (b) What is the physical significance of a renormalization-group fixed point?
    (c) Starting from the relation T’ – TC = λ (T – TC) near the fixed point at TC, derive the
    correlation length critical exponent ν occurring in ξ = ξ0 |T-TC| - ν. The length
    rescaling factor b of the renormalization-group transformation will occur in your

    2. Relevant equations

    relevant equations are give in (c)

    3. The attempt at a solution
