Statistical Mechanics of Phase Transitions J. M. Yeomans
Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA
Although system size and disorder are linked in a statistical physics description of fracture, the two parameters have typically been treated separately. Now, in Physical Review Letters, Ashivni Shekhawat at Cornell In this case, it has been shown that fracture of a disordered three-dimensional solid can be viewed as a dynamic phase transition: the crack front “depins” itself from the disorder . In statistical mechanics phase transitions are associated with singularities in the free energy. We investigate Lee-Yang zeros of generating functions of dynamical observables and establish a general relation between phase transitions in ensembles of trajectories of stochastic many-body systems and the time evolution of high-order cumulants of such observables.

The phase transition behavior has already been observed previously by Chatterjee and Varadhan, but the determination of the exact precise phase boundary is new. I was doing classical geophysics until the mid-1980s when I became aware of this area called complexity and chaos theory, which sounded like statistical physics, a subject I had always enjoyed. In 1989, I met Bill Kline, who was Once you think of them like that, you can describe them with a field theory, which is pretty much the same way they describe phase transitions in high-energy physics—the decay of the false vacuum in the early universe, for instance. Classical phase transitions have thermal fluctuations as the main driving force for the transition. PH 682 - Advanced Statistical Methods and Phase Transitions.
