TLDR
I propose the index h, defined as the number of papers with citation number ≥h, as a useful index to characterize the scientific output of a researcher. Expand

Spin Hall Effect
It is proposed that when a charge current circulates in a paramagnetic metal a transverse spin imbalance will be generated, giving rise to a ``spin Hall voltage.'' Similarly, it is proposed that whenExpand

TLDR
I propose the index $$\hbar$$ (“hbar”), defined as the number of papers of an individual that have citation count larger than or equal to all coauthors of each paper, as a useful index to characterize the scientific output of a researcher that takes into account the effect of multiple authorship.

Discrete Hubbard-Stratonovich transformation for fermion lattice models
On discute une nouvelle formulation d'integrale fonctionnelle de systemes de fermions en interaction sur un reseau, tels que les modeles d'Anderson et de Hubbard. L'interaction fermion-fermion estExpand

The Lorentz force and superconductivity
To change the velocity of an electron requires that a Lorentz force acts on it, through an electric or a magnetic field. We point out that within the conventional understanding of superconductivityExpand

Electrodynamics of superconductors
An alternate set of equations to describe the electrodynamics of superconductors at a macroscopic level is proposed. These equations resemble equations originally proposed by the London brothers butExpand

BCS theory of superconductivity: it is time to question its validity
The time-tested Bardeen–Cooper–Schrieffer (BCS) theory of superconductivity is generally accepted to be the correct theory of conventional superconductivity by physicists and, by extension, by theExpand

Efficient Monte Carlo Procedure for Systems with Fermions
A new Monte Carlo approach applicable to systems with fermion and boson degrees of freedom is proposed. The main advantage of the method is its speed: For systems in one space and one time dimensionExpand
