Introduction to the phenomenological and qualitative theory of superconductivity. Nowhere any assumption on the microscopic mechanism of superconductivity is made although on a few occasions electron-phonon interaction is mentioned as an example.

Table of contents: The Solid as a Quantum Many-Body System; Green's Functions; Green's Functions in the Superconducting State; Split-off of High Energy Parts; The Low Energy Equations; Strong Coupling Theory of the Transition Temperature; etc.
Superconductors differ fundamentally in quantum physics behavior from conventional materials in the manner by which electrons move through the material. It is these differences that give rise to the unique properties and performance benefits.
