Abstract 



We present here a unified theory embracing solely the discrete values d = 2, 3 and 4. The critical exponent. is central of this theory. The basic assumption made is that, for these three discrete values, we can express the critical exponent. in the form 14 + 3d. This formula contains the exact values for d = 2 and 4, namely 7/4 and 1, respectively. For d = 3, this formula yields the value 5/4 obtained earlier by Zhang (Philo. Mag. 87 (2007) 5309) from an analytical theory in which the mathematical difficulties associated with the Ising Hamiltonian were bypassed by two clearly stated conjectures. Earlier, K. G. Wilson (Phys. Rev. Lett. 28 (1972) 548), however, had proposed. = 1.247 from the loworder terms in the 2 expansion. Kardar's book contains the value. = 1.238 obtained by Borel summation of the epsilon expansion. Thus, the critical exponents given here for d = 2, 3 and 4 in terms of. and of course d itself are either exact or of such an accuracy that experimental error should embrace them.
