BCS: 50 Years - download pdf or read online

By Leon N Cooper,Dmitri Feldman

Named a best 5 publication of 2011 through Physics Today, USA.

The BCS thought of superconductivity constructed in 1957 by means of Bardeen, Cooper and Schrieffer has been remarkably winning in explaining the houses of superconductors. furthermore, suggestions from BCS were included into different fields of physics, from nuclear physics and dense quark topic to the present commonplace version. functional functions contain SQUIDs, magnetic resonance imaging, superconducting electronics and the transmission of electrical energy. This worthwhile e-book is a compilation of either a historic account and a dialogue of the present kingdom of conception and experiment.

With contributions from many in demand scientists, it goals to introduce scholars and researchers to the origins, the impression and the present kingdom of the BCS theory.
