Abstract

In recent years there has been increasing interest in the nonequi-librium properties of superconducting systems. In a broad sense, of course, all transport properties involve nonequilbirium (or metastable) states, and hence all of applied superconductivity depends upon these phenomena. However, we know from the fluctuation dissipation relation that linear transport coefficients can be determined by an analysis of equilibrium fluctuations. Thus, for some time efforts focused upon the nearly equilibrium situation and the problems of equilibrium fluctuations. Current interest in nonequilibrium superconductivity is associated with superconductors which are strongLy driven so that the quasipartides, phonons, and the pair field may be significantly different from their equilibrium values. It is this type of system, the “hot superconductor”, which will be discussed in this paper.
