9780124779082: Physical Acoustics. Principles and Methods. Volume VIII (v. 8)

This 20th volume of the "Physical Acoustics" series focuses on the acoustic study of high-temperature superconductors and related materials. In addition to chapters on cuprate superconductors, the book includes three chapters on some unconventional superconductors, and magnetic re-entrant superconductors. The book concludes with a theoretical chapter that seeks to provide a framework for understanding the different mechanisms that may be responsible for superconductivity in these novel materials.
