Well known for its accessibility to graduate students and experimental physicists, this volume emphasizes physical arguments and minimizes theoretical formalism. The second edition of this classic text features revisions by the author that improve Its user-friendly qualities, and an introductory survey of latter-day developments In classic superconductivity enhances the volume's value as a reference for researchers.

Starling with a historical overview, the text proceeds with an in to the electrodynamics 01 superconductors and presents expositions of the liardeen-Cooper-Schrieffer theory and the Ginzburg-Landau theory. Additional subjects include magnetic properties of classic type II superconductors; the Josephson effect (both in terms of basic phenomena and applications and of the phenomena unique to small nowlions); fluctuation effects in classic superconductors; the high-temperature superconductors; special topics (such as the Bogolitibov method, magnetic perturbations and gapless superconductivity, and time-dependent Ginzburg-Landau theory); and nonequilibrIum superconductivity
