Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0817638911, Paperback)The self-avoiding walk is a mathematical model with important applications in statistical mechanics and polymer science. This text provides a unified account of the rigorous results for the self-avoiding walk, focusing on its critical behaviour. Topics discussed include: the lace explosion and its application to the self-avoiding walk in more than four dimensions where most issues are now resolved; an introduction to the nonrigorous scaling theory; classical work of Hammersley and others; an exposition of Kesten's pattern theorem and its consequences; a discussion of the decay of the two-point function and its relation to probabilistic renewal theory; and the role of the self-avoiding walk in physical and chemical applications.
