### Abstract

There is only limited experimental evidence for the existence in nature of phase transitions of Ehrenfest order greater than two. However, there is no physical reason for their non-existence, and such transitions certainly exist in a number of theoretical models in statistical physics and lattice field theory. Here, higher-order transitions are analysed through the medium of partition function zeros. Results concerning the distributions of zeros are derived as are scaling relations between some of the critical exponents.
