It provides a common, intuitive approximation to the physics of such diverse phenomena as liquid-vapor transitions, ferromagnetism, superconductivity, order-disorder in alloys, ferroelectricity, superfluidity and ferroelasticity. The connection between the effective field approach and Landaus phenomenological theory is stressed. The latter half is devoted to some specific applications of the effective field concept to ferroelectric systems.
