Fundamental Physics Data Form Illustration for Book Cover

A recently published textbook on the modern theory of critical phenomena in many-body systems features the results from the Lambda Point Experiment on the cover. The Lambda Point Experiment flew on the Space Shuttle in 1992 to obtain the most precise determination of the properties near of a materiala continuous phase transition. John Lipa of Stanford University was the principal investigator for LPE. The book is entitled 'Critical Properties of phi4 Theories' by H. Kleinert and V. Schulte-Frohlinde, published by World Scientific. The text describes recent developments in the modeling of both static and dynamic critical effects, for which the LPE results represent one of the most critical tests.
