Constructive Theory of Critical Phenomena

Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 115)


The purpose of these lectures is to introduce some nonperturbative renormalization group (RG) methods for the study of certain problems of statistical mechanics and quantum field theory. Our aim is a nonperturbative construction of asymtotically free quantum field theories and non-gaussian critical points.
