Abstract

The study of interacting weak links has been stimulated by the interest in constructing coupled coherent arrays of Josephson elements for technical applications and by the desire to achieve a better understanding of the fundamental static and dynamic processes taking place in and around weak links. It should be noted that these phenomena are often most sensitively monitored by using another weak link or a tunnel junction (Giaever, 1965) as a detector.
