Superconductivity is an encyclopedic treatment of all aspects of the subject, from classic materials to "fullerenes". Emphasis is on balanced coverage, with a comprehensive reference list and significant graphics from all areas of the published literature. Widely used theoretical approaches are explained in detail. Topics of special interest include high temperature superconductors, spectroscopy, critical states, transport properties, and tunneling. Features: * Extensive and detailed tables of properties * Substantial art program * In-depth treatment of bucky balls (fullerenes) * Excellent chapter on spectroscopy
