Theory of Fluctuations in Superconductors, Paperback / softback Book

Description

This book presents a complete encyclopaedia of superconducting fluctuations, summarising the last thirty-five years of work in the field.

The first part of the book is devoted to an extended discussion of the Ginzburg-Landau phenomenology of fluctuations in its thermodynamical and time-dependent versions and its various applications.

The second part deals with microscopic justification of the Ginzburg-Landau approach and presents the diagrammatic theory offluctuations.

The third part is devoted to a less-detailed review of the manifestation of fluctuations in observables: diamagnetism, magnetoconductivity, various tunneling characteristics, thermoelectricity, and NMR relaxation.

The final chapters turn to the manifestation of fluctuations in unconventionalsuperconducting systems: nanodrops, nanorings, Berezinsky-Kosterlitz-Thouless state, quantum phase transition between superconductor and insulator, and thermal and quantum fluctuations in weak superconducting systems.

The book ends with a brief discussion on theories of high temperature superconductivity, where fluctuations appear as the possible protagonist of this exciting phenomenon.
