These lecture notes provide a mathematical introduction to the study of random lattice-based models from statistical physics. Through the study of percolation and of the Ising model, the author introduces the notion of phase transitions and describes some classical techniques. One of the main goals of these notes is also to present recent results of Stanislav Smirnov concerning the conformal invariance of these models in two-dimensional space.
