The tricritical point — a qualitative overview
The concept of tricritical points is introduced by way of examples of ordinary liquid mixtures and mixtures of normal He3 and superfluid He4. A prototype Ising spin model is used for a qualitative discussion of the mechanisms behind the occurrence of tricritical phenomena. Mention is also made of the other theoretical developments.
