Theory of Nonequilibrium Superconductivity

Nikolai Kopnin


This book presents modern theory of nonstationary and nonequilibrium superconductivity. It deals with superconductors in external fields varying in time and studies transport phenomena in superconductors. The book provides the microscopic theory based on the Green function formalism within the Bardeen, Cooper, and Schrieffer (BCS) theory. The method of quasiclassical Green functions is formulated for both stationary and nonequilibrium problems in the theory of superconductivity. Chapters 1 to 4 give an introduction to the Green function formalism in the BCS theory for clean materials and alloy ... More

Keywords: Green function, quasiclassical approximation, nonequilibrium superconductivity, kinetic equation, alloy, vortex, flux-flow conductivity, BCS theory, Ginzburg–Landau equation
