Critical phenomena in semi-infinite systems

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  14 July 2016

Abstract

This paper discusses the asymptotic behaviour, and in particular the critical singularities, of the generating functions for Pólya walks with a given fraction of visits to a hyperplane when the walk is or is not constrained to be on one side of that hyperplane. The three-dimensional case has applications in physics and chemistry.
