First order phase transitions are very common phenomena in our real world. In this talk, I will introduce a universal physical picture of first order phase transitions, which can be most clearly seen from holography (applied AdS/CFT). This picture can be made precise by the so-called landscape, from which we can understand why critical behaviors are ubiquitous in systems with first order phase transitions, where the inhomogeneous cases are of special interest.
