High-Temperature Superconductivity in Perspective
Publisher: U.S. Government Printing Office 1990
Number of pages: 129
As the title suggests, this study attempts to put HTS in perspective, both in terms of competing technologies (e.g., the more mature low-temperature superconductors), and in terms of the many technical and economic problems that must be overcome before HTS can be widely used.

Introduction to the phenomenological and qualitative theory of superconductivity. Nowhere any assumption on the microscopic mechanism of superconductivity is made although on a few occasions electron-phonon interaction is mentioned as an example.
by Alexander Gabovich (ed.) - InTech
Science of superconductivity develops rapidly and new discoveries are expected in the nearest future. The book includes 17 chapters written by noted scientists, dealing with various aspects of superconductivity, both theoretical and experimental.

Table of contents: The Solid as a Quantum Many-Body System; Green's Functions; Green's Functions in the Superconducting State; Split-off of High Energy Parts; The Low Energy Equations; Strong Coupling Theory of the Transition Temperature; etc.
Superconductors differ fundamentally in quantum physics behavior from conventional materials in the manner by which electrons move through the material. It is these differences that give rise to the unique properties and performance benefits.
