BCS: 50 Years by Leon N Cooper,Dmitri Feldman PDF

By Leon N Cooper,Dmitri Feldman

Named a most sensible 5 booklet 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 homes of superconductors. furthermore, recommendations from BCS were integrated into various fields of physics, from nuclear physics and dense quark subject to the present average version. sensible purposes contain SQUIDs, magnetic resonance imaging, superconducting electronics and the transmission of electrical energy. This beneficial ebook is a compilation of either a ancient account and a dialogue of the present country of idea and experiment.

With contributions from many well-known scientists, it goals to introduce scholars and researchers to the origins, the effect and the present kingdom of the BCS theory.
