Pressestimmen

' ... a short but very intelligible textbook well equilibrated by a variety of material.' V. Zagrebnov, Zentralblatt Math 'Supported with interesting exercises at the end of each chapter, Cardy's book is likely to prove a popular introduction to this demanding but extraordinarily successful method for probing many complex phenomena.' Robert Matthews New Scientist
