Theory of Superconductivity: A Primer
by Helmut Eschrig
Publisher: IFW Dresden 2008
Number of pages: 58
These lecture notes introduce into the phenomenological and qualitative theory of superconductivity. Nowhere any specific assumption on the microscopic mechanism of superconductivity is made although on a few occasions electron-phonon interaction is mentioned as an example. The theoretical presuppositions are exclusively guided by phenomena and kept to a minimum in order to arrive at results in a reasonably simple manner.

In this introduction, I discuss theoretical aspects of superfluidity and superconductivity, mostly using a field-theoretical formalism. While the emphasis is on general concepts, I also discuss applications in low-energy and high-energy physics.

This book is a collection of the chapters intended to study only practical applications of HTS materials. You will find here the recent results of research on actual applications of HTS as well as possible future applications of HTS.

As the title suggests, this study attempts to put HTS in perspective, both in terms of competing technologies (e.g., low-temperature superconductors), and in terms of the many technical problems that must be overcome before HTS can be widely used.
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.
