The authors have focussed attention on a number of concepts widely used by research workers but needing clarification and more careful definition, like metastable states, clusters, supercooling, spinodal decomposition. The material in this article is of great significance to all who are interested in phase transitions, but it has not in the past been given the attention it deserves. Since the authors have successfully undertaken the huge task of covering the relevant literature and describing its content concisely and coherently, this defect may perhaps be remedided in the near future.

Summary: The field of phase transitions and critical phenomena continues to be active in research, producing a steady stream of interesting and fruitful results. It has moved into a central place in condensed matter studies.Statistical physics, and more specifically, the theory of transitions between states of matter, more or less defines what we know about 'everyday' matter and its transformations.The major aim of this serial is to provide review articles that can serve as standard references for research workers in the field, and for graduate students and others wishing to obtain reliable information on important recent developments.
