On the theory of superconductivity

  • V. L. Ginzburg
Article

Summary

Macroscopic theory of superconductivity valid for magnetic fields of arbitrary magnitude and the behaviour of superconductors in weak high frequency fields are discussed. The problem of formulating a microscopic theory of superconductivity is also considered.

Riassunto

Si discute una teoria macroscopica della superconduttività valida per campi magnetici di intensità arbitraria e il comportamento dei superconduttori in campi deboli di alta frequenza. Si considera altresì il problema della formulazione di una teoria microscopica della superconduttività.
