The Random-Cluster Model Hardback
Part of the Grundlehren der mathematischen Wissenschaften series
The random-cluster model has emerged as a key tool in the mathematical study of ferromagnetism.
It may be viewed as an extension of percolation to include Ising and Potts models, and its analysis is a mix of arguments from probability and geometry.
The Random-Cluster Model contains accounts of the subcritical and supercritical phases, together with clear statements of important open problems.
The book includes treatment of the first-order (discontinuous) phase transition.
