The influence of Coulomb repulsion and fluctuation effects on the critical temperature in layered superconductors
The influence of the electronic Coulomb repulsion on the critical temperature for a layered superconductor is studied by using the Eliashberg theory. The dependence of the critical temperature, Tc,

It is argued that, in the presence of charge ordering, a nonmonotonic behavior with decreasing temperature is possible with a maximum in the resistance just before entering the superconducting phase.

The Ginzburg-Landau functional for a superconductor is extended to include a quantum-fluctuation term arising from imperfect screening of the long-range Coulomb interaction and it is shown that the phase stiffness is proportional to doping away from the 1/2-full Mott insulating state.

The value of the superconducting critical temperature of artificially layered superconductor layers is calculated as a function of both the number of layers of pure Y-Ba-Cu-O within a unit cell of thesuperlattice and the thickness of the insulating layer.
Instability of granular superconductivity
It is shown that bulk superconductivity of a three-dimensional granular metal can become unstable with respect to the diverging zero-point phase fluctuations which result from grain charging. A model

A reentrant transition is found to exist for moderate quantum fluctuations; it persists regardless of the ratio of the junction capacitance to the self-capacitance although the junction capacitor tends to suppress the reduction of the transition temperature due to quantum fluctuations.
Collective mode and the c-axis critical current of a Josephson-coupled superconductor at high parallel magnetic fields.
Using Maxwell and time-dependent Ginzburg-Landau equations in the framework of a Lawrence-Doniach model, the dispersion relation and relaxation rate of collective modes in the absence of a magnetic field and in a strong parallel magnetic field is obtained.
Superconducting phase transitions in granular systems
We consider a model for granular superconductors consisting of an array of small superconducting particles interacting by Josephson coupling through insulating barriers. We obtain systematically the
