Theory of Superconductivity: A Primer
by Helmut Eschrig
Publisher: IFW Dresden 2008
Number of pages: 58
These lecture notes introduce into the phenomenological and qualitative theory of superconductivity. Nowhere any specific assumption on the microscopic mechanism of superconductivity is made although on a few occasions electron-phonon interaction is mentioned as an example. The theoretical presuppositions are exclusively guided by phenomena and kept to a minimum in order to arrive at results in a reasonably simple manner.

As the title suggests, this study attempts to put HTS in perspective, both in terms of competing technologies (e.g., low-temperature superconductors), and in terms of the many technical problems that must be overcome before HTS can be widely used.

In this introduction, I discuss theoretical aspects of superfluidity and superconductivity, mostly using a field-theoretical formalism. While the emphasis is on general concepts, I also discuss applications in low-energy and high-energy physics.
