Superconducting State provides a very detailed theoretical treatment of the key mechanisms of superconductivity, including the current state of the art (phonons, magnons, and plasmons). A very complete description is given of the electron-phonon mechanism responsible for superconductivity inthe majority of superconducting systems, and the history of its development, as well as a detailed description of the key experimental techniques used to study the superconducting state and determine the mechanisms. In addition, there are chapters describing the discovery and properties of the key superconducting compounds that are of the most interest for science, and applications including a special chapter on the cuprate superconductors. It provides detailed treatments of some very novel aspects ofsuperconductivity, including multiple bands (gaps), the "pseudogap" state, novel isotope effects beyond BCS, and induced superconductivity.
Vladimir Kresin graduated from Moscow University. Later he studied with the Landau School of Theoretical Physics. He received his PhD and Doctor of Sci. degrees performing studies in the area of superconductivity. He was a Professor of Theoretical Physics at Moscow Pedagogical University. Since 1980 - Principal Investigator at the Law...
