I Phase transitions university classes

  1. Nov 10, 2016 #1
    There's someting that I'd like to know and haven't been able to find in any book:

    1.- Is the number of second order phase transition university classes known?

    2.- Do we know quantitatively know the behavior of all such second order phase transition university classes?

    3.- Do we know the university class the electroweak phase transition belongs to? I'm assuming, perhaps
    incorrectly, that this Universe phase transition was second order.

    Any insight regarding any of these three questions will be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

    What do you mean by "university classes"? I recognize the term "second order phase transition" but not "second order phase transition university classes." A Google search for that phrase didn't find anything. Perhaps this is a problem with translation from Spanish (I guess)?

    Hi there!

    Thanks for the post. This is not a translation problem. Please, go to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phase_transition and then to
    Critical exponents and universality classes. The subject is pretty well explained at the end of this section.

    Thanks again,
