Contents pt. I. Introduction. What are the critical phenomena? A survey of some basic results -- Useful thermodynamic relations for fluid and magnetic systems -- part II. Critical-point exponents and rigorous relations among them. Critical-point exponents -- Exponent inequalities -- part III. Classical theories of cooperative phenomena. The Van der Waals theory of liquid-gas phase transitions -- The mean field theory of magnetic phase transitions -- The pair correlation function and the Ornstein-Zernike theory -- part IV. Models of fluid and magnetic phase transitions. Results provided by exact solution of model systems -- Results obtained from model systems by approximation methods -- part V. Phenomenological theories of phase transitions. Landau's classic theory of exponents -- Scaling law hypothesis for thermodynamic functions -- Scaling of the static correlation functions -- part VI.
