   schema:reviewBody ""Drawn from the author's introductory course at the University of Orsay, Superconductivity of Metals and Alloys is a classic work that provides a basic knowledge of superconductivity for both experimentalists and theoreticians. The notes begin with an elementary discussion of magnetic properties of Type I and Type II superconductors. The microscopic theory is then built up in the Bogolubov language of self-consistent fields: this is powerful enough to cover the situations where the order parameter is modulated in space; it also retains some of the physical insight which we associate with one-particle wave functions. At this stage, the properties of alloys are systematically discussed in parallel with those of the pure metals. This text provides the classic, fundamental basis for any work in the field of superconductivity."--BOOK JACKET." ;
