Critical exponents and the pseudo-є-expansion
We present the pseudo-є-expansions (τ-series) for the critical exponents of a λϕ 4-type three-dimensional O(n)-symmetric model obtained on the basis of six-loop renormalization-group expansions. We present numerical results in the physically interesting cases n = 1, n = 2, n = 3, and n = 0 and also for 4 ≤ n ≤ 32 to clarify the general properties of the obtained series. The pseudo-є-expansions or the exponents γ and α have coefficients that are small in absolute value and decrease rapidly, and direct summation of the τ -series therefore yields quite acceptable numerical estimates, while applying the Padé approximants allows obtaining high-precision results. In contrast, the coefficients of the pseudo-є-expansion of the scaling correction exponent ω do not exhibit any tendency to decrease at physical values of n. But the corresponding series are sign-alternating, and to obtain reliable numerical estimates, it also suffices to use simple Padé approximants in this case. The pseudo-є-expansion technique can therefore be regarded as a distinctive resummation method converting divergent renormalization-group series into expansions that are computationally convenient.
