The Polymer Expansion

  • James Glimm
  • Arthur Jaffe


There are regimes in statistical physics where the observable quantities admit power series expansions. These expansions, in a suitable parameter range, converge uniformly in the volume, and allow a mathematical definition of all thermodynamic quantities in the infinite volume limit. Thus these expansions are a very powerful tool. They are generally known as cluster expansions.
