Theory of Cyclic Loss in a High-Tc Superconductor
High-temperature superconductors tend to require more carefully developed loss theory than ordinary low-T c materials. For this reason expressions for the energy loss in a superconductor, based on Maxwell’s equations, are re-derived in order to point out differences and similarities in the application of these results to high- and low-T c materials.

The first gives the common engineering B-Ii curve, while the second gives a quite different local curve sometimes used by physicists.Google Scholar
