Introduction to superfluidity: Field-theoretical approach and applications
by Andreas Schmitt
Publisher: Springer 2014
Number of pages: 150
In this pedagogical introduction, I discuss theoretical aspects of superfluidity and superconductivity, mostly using a field-theoretical formalism. While the emphasis is on general concepts and mechanisms behind superfluidity, I also discuss various applications in low-energy and high-energy physics.

Science of superconductivity develops rapidly and new discoveries are expected in the nearest future. The book includes 17 chapters written by noted scientists, dealing with various aspects of superconductivity, both theoretical and experimental.

As the title suggests, this study attempts to put HTS in perspective, both in terms of competing technologies (e.g., low-temperature superconductors), and in terms of the many technical problems that must be overcome before HTS can be widely used.
Superconductors differ fundamentally in quantum physics behavior from conventional materials in the manner by which electrons move through the material. It is these differences that give rise to the unique properties and performance benefits.
