About this book

Introduction

The motion of electrons in superconductors seems to defy our imagination based on daily experience with Newtonian mechanics. This book shows that the classical concepts, such as the balance of forces acting on electrons, are useful for understanding superconductivity. The electrostatic field plays a natural part in this balance as it mediates forces between electrons at long distances. Due to its classical interpretation, the theory presented in this book is suitable for introductory courses.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The book consists of sixteen chapters, a conclusion and three appendices. Each chapter is accompanied with a summary, a set of exercises, a detailed list of references from the classical to the latest contributions in the literature, and suggestions for further reading. The book is aimed at graduate students in physics and researchers entering the field, and clearly serves as a modern introduction to the topic. … I found the book very accessible, clearly written, and a real pleasure to read." (Ayman Kachmar, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2008 j)

“The book is devoted to statement of analogy between the electrostatic field in superconductors and the pressure in the ideal incompressible liquid on the base of force balance acting on the superconducting condensate. … In total, this sound and thorough book on application of electrostatic force approach to the superconductors, written in the sufficiently simple … .” (I. A. Parinov, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1189, 2010)
