Introduction to superfluidity: Field-theoretical approach and applications
by Andreas Schmitt
Publisher: Springer 2014
Number of pages: 150
In this pedagogical introduction, I discuss theoretical aspects of superfluidity and superconductivity, mostly using a field-theoretical formalism. While the emphasis is on general concepts and mechanisms behind superfluidity, I also discuss various applications in low-energy and high-energy physics.

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.

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.
