A parameter n that characterizes the temperature dependence of a thermodynamic property of a substance near its critical point; the temperature dependence has the form | T-Tc | n , where T is the temperature and Tc is the critical temperature.

i]'s), it is not suitable to get general asymptotics from this formula, so we now proceed with another approach, which leads to a nice universal result for the critical exponents, but to the price of a rather technical proof.
The theory of Puiseux expansions (or the theory of G-functions) implies that every algebraic function has a Puiseux series expansion and, thus, the critical exponents are rational numbers.
