This introduction to some of the principal models in the theory of
disordered systems leads the reader through the basics, to the very
edge of contemporary research, with the minimum of technical fuss.
Topics covered include random walk, percolation, self-avoiding
walk, interacting particle systems, uniform spanning tree, random
graphs, as well as the Ising, Potts, and random-cluster models for
ferromagnetism, and the Lorentz model for motion in a... more...
