Named a best 5 publication of 2011 via Physics Today, USA.

The BCS thought of superconductivity constructed in 1957 through Bardeen, Cooper and Schrieffer has been remarkably profitable in explaining the homes of superconductors. furthermore, innovations from BCS were integrated into assorted fields of physics, from nuclear physics and dense quark topic to the present commonplace version. sensible purposes comprise SQUIDs, magnetic resonance imaging, superconducting electronics and the transmission of electrical energy. This helpful e-book is a compilation of either a historic account and a dialogue of the present country of idea and experiment.

With contributions from many well known scientists, it goals to introduce scholars and researchers to the origins, the impression and the present kingdom of the BCS theory.
