The Coulomb Gas is a model of Statistical Mechanics with a special type of phase transition. In the first part of the talk I will review the expected features conjectured by physicists and the few mathematical results so far obtained. The second part will be an introductory discussion of a general technique (Renormalization Group) to approach the problem.
