Theory of Fluctuations in Superconductors

Anatoly Larkin (late) and Andrei Varlamov


This book presents itself as both an encyclopedia and a textbook of fluctuation phenomena in superconductors. The first half presents the phenomenological methods of the Ginzburg-Landau theory and microscopical methods of the quantum field theory in the description of fluctuations. The second half provides a wide panorama of the superconductive fluctuations manifestated in different observables: their role in fields such as high temperature superconductivity, nano-superconductivity, the physics of Josephson junctions and granular superconductors, and strongly disordered superconductors. Other ... More

Keywords: fluctuation phenomena, order parameter, quantum fluctuations, Ginzburg-Landau theory, fluctuation diamagnetism, paraconductivity, fluctuation propagator, superconductivity, Josephson junctions
