John Schieffer's book was written for solid state physicists with more than just a casual interest in superconductivity. The discussion of Cooper pairs, the foundation for BCS theory, though not difficult to read, is easier to understand after going through Gordon Baym's discussion of this topic in Lectures On Quantum Mechanics (Lecture Notes and Supplements in Physics)/5(6).

Since the discovery of an oxide superconductor with critical temperature (Tc) approximately equal to 35 K (by Bednorz and Muller ), there are a great number of laboratories all over the world involved in research of superconductors with high Tc values, the so-called "High-Tc superconductors".

This book is P. Anderson's long-awaited full presentation of his theory of high-T"c" superconductivity in the cuprates. He realized that this striking new phenomenon needed for its explanation not just a new mechanism or "gimmick" but a radical reworking of the electronic theory of metals, especially those of low dimension/5(3).

superconductivity. However, in the wake of the high-temperature superconductivity ‘revolution’, one particular adaptation of Hubbard’s original model called the t–J model (originally arising in the context of doped Mott–Hubbard insulators) emerged as a compelling candidate for hosting a superconducting state.

A rigorous proof. This book contains detailed insights on the calculus of variations that studies the equilibrium density matrix for many-particle Fermi systems. There are two approximations taken into account in the book.

The simplest one is the mean field approximation. The second approximation applies not only to the particle distribution pattern but also to the correlation by: 2. Assuming you have basic undergrad knowledge of E&M, statistical mechanics, and quantum mechanics, I would suggest starting off by reading the superconductivity chapter in a standard solid state physics textbook such as Introduction to Theory of superconductivity book State.

Abstract. This book discusses the most important aspects of the theory. The phenomenological model is followed by the microscopic theory of superconductivity, in which modern formalism of the many-body theory is used to treat most important problems such as superconducting alloys, coexistence of superconductivity with the magnetic order, and superconductivity in quasi-one.

Superconductivity is characterized by a vanishing static electrical resistivity and an expulsion of the magnetic field from the interior of a sample. We will discuss these basic experiments in the following chapter, but mainly this course is dealing with the theory of superconductivity.

Theoretical concepts of superconductivity are discussed in this chapter using applications derived from Green's functions. This chapter covers ground from the standard theory of superconductivity including the Cooper instability, electron–phonon effective interaction and the Nambu theory of superconductivity.

BCS theory or Bardeen–Cooper–Schrieffer theory (named after John Bardeen, Leon Cooper, and John Robert Schrieffer) is the first microscopic theory of superconductivity since Heike Kamerlingh Onnes's discovery. The theory describes superconductivity as a microscopic effect caused by a condensation of Cooper theory is also used in nuclear physics to describe the.

Certainly a classic centered on theory is the book by Schrieffer, Superconductivity, but very old. I fear there is no up to date text book available.

Superconductivity is the set of physical properties observed in certain materials, wherein electrical resistance vanishes and from which magnetic flux fields are expelled. Any material exhibiting these properties is a an ordinary metallic conductor, whose resistance decreases gradually as its temperature is lowered even down to near absolute zero, a.

Abstract. The theory of superconductivity was formulated by Bardeen, Cooper, and Schrieffer () and is called the BCS theory. It very successfully describes the superconducting properties of weak superconductors, such as aluminum, which are weak because of the small strength of the electron-phonon interaction.

Further refinements of the theory have led to the strong coupling. 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.

Theory of Superconductivity is considered one of the best treatment of the field. This monograph, by Nobel Prize-winning physicist J. Robert Schrieffer, has been reprinted because of its enduring value as an introduction to the theory of superconductivity/5(2).

Starting from this mechanism, Bardeen, Cooper and Schrieffer developed in a theory of superconductivity, which gave a complete theoretical explanation of the phenomenon. [The BCS Theory] was indeed very successful in explaining in considerable detail the properties of superconductors.

This volume contains the article "Microscopic Theory of Superconductivity" found on pages by Bardeen, Cooper, and Schrieffer who won the Nobel Prize for Physics in "for their jointly developed theory of superconductivity, usually called the BCS-theory".

ON THE THEORY OF SUPERCONDUCTIVITY The existing phenomenological theory of superconductivity is unsatisfactory since it does not allow us to determine the surface tension at the boundary between the normal and the superconducting phases and does not allow for the possibility to describe correctly the destruction of superconductivity by a magnetic field or current.

This book proposes a thorough introduction for a varied audience. The reader will master London theory and the Pippard equations, and go on to understand type I and type II superconductors (their thermodynamics, magnetic properties, vortex dynamics, current transport), Cooper pairs and the results of BCS theory.

Book Description. Theory of Superconductivity is primarily intended to serve as a background for reading the literature in which detailed applications of the microscopic theory of superconductivity are made to specific problems.

The essential point is that below Tc the binding energy of a pair of electrons causes the opening of a gap in the energy spectrum at E f (the Fermi energy - the highest occupied level in a solid), separating the pair states.

Macroscopic theory of superconductivity valid for magnetic fields of arbitrary magnitude and the behaviour of superconductors in weak high frequency fields are discussed.

The problem of formulating a microscopic theory of superconductivity is also by: The book divides naturally into two parts. Part I introduces the phenomenology of superconductivity, the microscopic BCS theory, and its extension to the intermediate coupling regime.

The first three chapters of this part cover generally accepted themes in the conventional theory of superconductivity and serve as a good introduction to the subject.
