Physics Colloquium


We review some recent surprising progress on the classic problem of characterizing second-order phase transitions. There are new general results about critical exponents, a better understanding of what happens when relevant operators are turned on, and a new powerful numerical technique that does not require a lattice formulation of the theory.
