Introduction to superconductivity
Introduction to Superconductivity has become an essential part of many undergraduate courses. This revised edition has a new chapter covering high temperature superconductivity as well as a significant number of other updates & revisions. The authors have aimed to explain as clearly as possible the basic phenomena & concepts of superconductivity in a manner which will be understood by those with no previous knowledge of the field & only a modest acquaintance with solid state physics. Their success in this aim can be measured by the widespread acceptance of this book as one of the finest textbooks in the field
