Overview

Focusing on selected topics rather than collections of chapters or articles this excellent monograph deals with recognition of the role of chemical equilibria in a fundamental manner, quantitative analyses and interpretations of the pertinent data and quantitative interrelations among the three signatures of superconductivity--resistance, diamagnetic susceptibility and specific heat.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Thorn (Retiree Resident Associate, Argonne National Laboratory) proposes that mixed valency holds the key to similarities between organic compounds and oxides, and presents a perspective on superconductivity focusing on chemical equilibrai as the basis for the conceptual difference between chemistry and physics. He discusses crystal and electronic structures, electrical and optical conductivity, and the interrelations among the three signatures of superconductivity. The volume provides mathematical analyses and interpretation, and a disk containing programs used to calculate and graphically represent properties of superconducting materials. Annotation c.
