Originally conceived some thirty years ago in the context ofquantum electrodynamics, renormalization methods have progressivelydeveloped into an indispensable analytical tool used in widelyvarying domains of physics and applied mathematics, such as

phase transitions and critical phenomena

dynamical systems and chaos

developed turbulence

fractal structures and complex systems


polymer physics

diffusion in disordered media

measure theory and stochastic processes.
By explaining the fundamental principles of renormalization theorysuch as scale invariance and universality which lie behind all thetechnical variations, this book aims to guide the reader to a moreunified understanding of today s physics. The book is based on avery accessible main text, supplemented by several more specializedsections; it is intended for graduate students and for researcherswho are seeking an introduction to a new area of electrodynamics ora general overview of the physical phenomena to whichrenormalization methods are applied.
