9781107018556: Strong-Coupling Theory of High-Temperature Superconductivity

High-temperature superconductivity has transformed the landscape of solid state science, leading to the discovery of new classes of materials, states of matter, and concepts. However, despite being over a quarter of a century since its discovery, there is still no single accepted theory to explain its origin. This book presents one approach, the strong-coupling or bipolaron theory, which proposes that high-temperature superconductivity originates from competing Coulomb and electron-phonon interactions. The author provides a thorough overview of the theory, describing numerous experimental observations, and giving detailed mathematical derivations of key theoretical findings at an accessible level. Applications of the theory to existing high-temperature superconductors are discussed, as well as possibilities of liquid superconductors and higher critical temperatures. Alternative theories are also examined to provide a balanced and informative perspective. This monograph will appeal to advanced researchers and academics in the fields of condensed matter physics and quantum-field theories.

Book Description:

High-temperature superconductivity has transformed solid state science; however there is no single accepted theory to explain its origin. This book introduces the strong-coupling or bipolaron theory and is aimed at researchers and academics. It provides a thorough and balanced overview of the theory, discussing experimental observations, applications and alternative theories.

About the Author:

Professor Alexandre S. Alexandrov is Professor of Theoretical Physics at Loughborough University, UK and Visiting Professor at UNICAMP, Campinas, Brazil. His research focuses on high-temperature superconductivity, polarons, molecular electronics, colossal magnetoresistance and charged Bose liquids.

Book Description Cambridge University Press. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Hardcover. 206 pages. Dimensions: 9.4in. x 6.4in. x 0.8in.Simplex geometry is a topic generalizing geometry of the triangle and tetrahedron. The appropriate tool for its study is matrix theory, but applications usually involve solving huge systems of linear equations or eigenvalue problems, and geometry can help in visualizing the behaviour of the problem. In many cases, solving such systems may depend more on the distribution of non-zero coefficients than on their values, so graph theory is also useful. The author has discovered a method that in many (symmetric) cases helps to split huge systems into smaller parts. Many readers will welcome this book, from undergraduates to specialists in mathematics, as well as non-specialists who only use mathematics occasionally, and anyone who enjoys geometric theorems. It acquaints the reader with basic matrix theory, graph theory and elementary Euclidean geometry so that they too can appreciate the underlying connections between these various areas of mathematics and computer science. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Bookseller Inventory # 9781107018556
