Editorial Reviews

In September 1997 in Cargese, France, scientists gathered to compare experimental results and models now that the availability of single crystals allows high-precision experiments that are reproducible and reliable. Oddly enough, many did not agree, and some heated controversy ensued. They concentrate on new experimental effects on two scales: the anisotropy of superconductive gap, concerned with the microscopic pair coupling; and thermal fluctuations, including vortex melting, related to the quasi-two- dimensional structures studied. The models offered range from strong to weak electron correlations, with an unusual emphasis on the latter. The 29 papers cover theories and models, materials and applications, optical spectroscopy, magnetic properties, thermodynamic properties and fluctuations, and tunneling experiments.
