This comprehensive systematic overview covers the static and dynamic critical phenomena of real, non-ideal fluids in the nearest vicinity of the critical point, offers new approaches and presents research results on the highest level. Including both theoretical and experimental researches, it also deals with the critical opalescence as phenomenon with continuously growing scattering multiplicity upon approaching the critical point.
