The rescaled model, in which the correlation length is smaller by a factor ,1 , will appear to be further from the critical point. It will, therefore, have e ective values of 4K and L larger than those in the original model. These rescaled values we denote by yK 4K and yL L, for some unknown positive scaling exponents yK and yL . The important assumption made at this stage is that, for points su ciently close to the critical point in phase 26 2. Phase Transitions and Scaling Theory Fig. 4. Lattice of spacing a divided into cells, of linear dimension a, containing d spins.
2 the order parameter is a scalar quantity, so one would, on the basis of a and b alone, expect the exponents to be those of the pure Ising model, for the corresponding value of d. It can, however, be shown Volume 1, Sect. 2 that instead of the Ising exponents and for the heat capacity and susceptibility respectively the actual exponents r and r are given in terms of their Ising values by r = , =1 , and r = =1 , . This change of exponent, whenever 6= 0, = 0 for d = 2 is called exponent renormalization Fisher 1968.
This means that r acts as the single measure of the distance from the critical point and, under the sequence of transformations r ! r ! 2 r , 4K and L transform according to 4K ! yK 4K ! 2yK 4K and L ! yL L ! 2yL L respectively. 7 As we saw in Sect. 2, the critical point will correspond to non-smooth behaviour of the free energy of the system. It will, however, itself be nite non-zero and contain a smooth component. 9 sing = sing L; 4K contains all the non-smooth behaviour of and sing 0; 0 = 0.
