Mathematical derivations are presented in a fashion which can hardly be made more explicit. The derivations can be followed with paper and pencil in hand I trust that even in the age of computers certain routine computations and manipulations need to be actively assailed by the student.
Particular mention goes to the fine discussion of similarity solutions and renormalisation in a general setting chapter ten.
We read: "the physical interpretation is quite straightforward. Renormalisation cures the problem of divergences, but still does not lead to anomalous dimensions.
However, it is particularly difficult to single out any chapter above all others, as the entire text is a model of lucidity: if this is is not an example of a physics "classic", then I am at a loss as to the definition of that term. Learn more regards: thermodynamic limit, efficacy of "completing-the-square," exercise, page 82 , utility of "integration-by-parts " page , Gaussian approximation page , probability distributions page , left-and-right eigenvectors page , and last, but not least, "the connection between renormalisation and dimensional analysis.
Thus, the lectures come back almost full circle introductory dimensional analysis culminating with the connections to renormalisation. This text gives one the impression of sitting-in on the Professor's Lectures, being elated with that experience! Not an easy text by any stretch of the imagination, but dense with insight and "tricks-of-the-trade. Nigel Goldenfeld's book, "Lectures on Phase Transitions and the Renormalization Group" is clear, lucid, and very well-written.
One of the most challenging things in writing such a book I won't call it a text; but it serves well for that purpose is in helping the reader to gain conceptual insight into the subjects, and not to simply to present a series of equations. In this, Dr.

Goldenfeld succeeds admirably. Topics that Goldenfeld discusses most significantly; the renormalization group concept and critical phenomena are presented in a very clear and accessible manner. In fact, his book is so useful that I have adopted his reference as my own "standard nomenclature," and have translated my previously-used notation and also studied in such classic's as Hill's "Statistical Mechanics" to agree with Goldenfeld's.
One of the aspects that I am particularly enjoying is the care with which Goldenfeld builds the underlying logic and arguments as he approaches key points. This is very well-done, and makes this book a solid "go-to" reference in developing a well-grounded understanding of emerging yet very important topics. This is an excellent textbook for anyone who wants to learn how phase transition happens and the renormalization group. I think this will be the best introductory book if you want to learn about RG in the statistical mechanics context.
