About this book

Since the 1980s, a general theme in the study of high-temperature superconductors has been to test the BCS theory and its predictions against new data. At the same time, this process has engendered new physics, new materials, and new theoretical frameworks. Remarkable advances have occurred in sample quality and in single crystals, in hole and electron doping in the development of sister compounds with lower transition temperatures, and in instruments to probe structure and dynamics. Handbook of High-Temperature Superconductvity is a comprehensive and in-depth treatment of both experimental and theoretical methodologies by the the world's top leaders in the field. The Editor, Nobel Laureate J. Robert Schrieffer, and Associate Editor James S. Brooks, have produced a unified, coherent work providing a global view of high-temperature superconductivity covering the materials, the relationships with heavy-fermion and organic systems, and the many formidable challenges that remain. 

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This handbook is devoted to recent advances in the study of various important processes occurring in high-temperature superconductivity. … This book is strongly recommended to researchers in Mathematical Physics and Applied Mathematics interested in nonlinear phenomena but it may be also useful and comprehensive for a broader community of mathematicians, physicists, and engineers. … the present book is one of the most important works in its field that have been written in the last decade." (Vicentiu D. Radulescu, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1122 (24), 2007)
