The course note
on Advanced Statistical Mechanics: Phase transitions and critical phenomena is
about different phases of matter and its study using statistical mechanics. In
this course note phenomenology of phase transitions of different order will be
elaborated, statistical thermodynamics of these systems will be established,
different models will be constructed to study the phenomena, analytical and
numerical techniques will be discussed for solving these models.
