About this title


This is a text on superconductivity, an area of intense research activity worldwide. The book is in three parts. The first covers the London, Pippard and GinzburgSHLandau theories, which are used to discuss a wide range of phenomena involving surface energies, vorticity, the intermediate and mixed states, boundaries and boundary conditions, the upper critical field in bulk, thin film and anisotropic superconductors, and surface superconductivity. The second part discusses the microscopic theory of Bardeen, Cooper and Schrieffer. The theory is used to discuss quasi particle tunneling and the Josephson effects from a microscopic point of view. The final part of the book treats nonuniform superconductors using the BogoliubovSHde Gennes approach with which it is possible to extract many important results without invoking Green's function methods. This text will be of great interest to graduate students taking courses in superconductivity, superfluidity, many body theory, and quantum liquids. It will also be of value to research workers in the field of superconductivity.

Book Description:

Superconductivity is presently the focus of worldwide activity. Interest in the field was recently stimulated by the discovery of the so-called high temperature superconductors. The present text focuses of the underlying theory of superconductivity. Much of the first part of the book, which treats phenomenological theories, should be understandable by students with an undergraduate degree in physics. Parts II and III, which make use of second quantization, should be understandable by students who have completed a first year of graduate school. The book should be useful to students and researchers in the field wishing to have a deeper understanding of the theory of superconductivity.
