Fluctuation conductivity in the vicinity of the superconducting transition

  • A. I. Larkin
  • Yu. N. Ovchinnikov


The conductivity of the metal in the vicinity of the superconductivity transition point has been obtained. The nonlinear fluctuation effects change the temperature dependence of the conductivity in a wide range of temperatures, in which fluctuation corrections to thermodynamic quantities are still small. At comparatively strong pair breaking these effects decrease the fluctuation correction, which may exceed the conductivity of normal metal far from the transition temperature.
