The subject of this book is equilibrium statistical mechanics, in particular the theory of critical phenomena, and quantum field theory. The central theme is the use of random-walk representations as a tool to derive correlation inequalities. The consequences of these inequalities for critical-exponent theory are expounded in detail. The book contains some previously unpublished results. It addresses both the researcher and the graduate student in modern statistical mechanics and quantum field theory.
