This chapter discusses the quantum phase transition using the example of superconductor-insulator transition. For the 3D case, a version of the Ginzburg-Landau formalism is formulated from both normal and anomalous diffusion. The description of such transition in the case of 2D superconductors is very specific and strongly differs from the 3D case. The ideas of boson and fermion mechanisms of the Tc suppression in 2D cases are presented, and their predictions are compared with the experimental conditions.

Keywords:   quantum phase transition, superconductor-insulator transition, anomalous diffusion, duality hypothesis, boson mechanism, fermion mechanism
