Overview


Drawn from the author’s introductory course at the University of Orsay, Superconductivity of Metals and Alloys is intended to explain the basic knowledge of superconductivity for both experimentalists and theoreticians. These notes begin with an elementary discussion of magnetic properties of Type I and Type II superconductors. The microscopic theory is then built up in the Bogolubov language of self-consistent fields. This text provides the classic, fundamental basis for any work in the field of superconductivity.

Nobel Laureate De Gennes provides a basic knowledge of superconductivity for both experimentalists and theoreticians. He begins with an elementary discussion of the magnetic properties of Type I and Type II superconductors, then builds the microscopic theory in the Bogolubov language of self-consistent fields. The treatment is from an introductory course he give in 1962 and 1963, and was also published in 1966 and 1989. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
