Summary

Summary

Theory of Superconductivity is considered one of the best treatment of the field. This monograph, by Nobel Prize-winning physicist J. Robert Schrieffer, has been reprinted because of its enduring value as an introduction to the theory of superconductivity. The fundamentals of the theory of superconductivity are stresses as a means of providing the reader with a framework for the literature in which detailed applications of the microscopic theory are made to specific problems. It also serves as a foundation for the more recent development in this active field.


Author Notes

J. Robert Schrieffer received his B.S. from MIT. He continued his studies at the University of Illinois, where he along with Professors John Bardeen and Leon Cooper developed the theory of superconductivity. He continued his work as a fellow at the University of Birmingham and the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen. Following work at the Universities of Chicago and Illinois, Schrieffer won the Nobel Prize, in 1972, for his work in superconductivity, sharing the honor with Bardeen and Cooper. He was a professor of physics at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and is now at the University of Florida, Tallahassee.
