Superconductors, the Superconductive Phase Transition and Fluctuations
In the following the main steps in the study of the superconductive state along the twentieth century are schematically collected.
Complexity in high-temperature superconductors
A spin-fermion and Landau–Ginzburg model for high-temperature superconductors are formulated and analyzed with unbiased numerical techniques. A study of the competition between d-wave
Local electronic structure of defects in superconductors
The electronic structure near defects (such as impurities) in superconductors is explored using a fully self-consistent technique. This technique exploits the short-range nature of the impurity
This paper reviews vortex behavior and formation of vortex liquid due to vortex lattice melting in high temperature superconductors (HTSC). The microscopic theory of superconductivity and the basic
Phenomenologism vs fundamentalism: The case of superconductivity
This article argues that phenomenological treatment of physical problems is more powerful than fundamental treatment. Developments in the field of superconductivity present us with a clear example of
Local moment physics in heavy electron systems
This set of lectures describes the physics of moment formation, the basic physics of the Kondo effect and the development of a coherent heavy electron fluid in the dense Kondo lattice. The last
Electronic Structure and Thermodynamic Properties of High Temperature Superconductors
The generic doping dependence of the thermodynamic, electrodynamic and transport properties of high-temperature superconductors remains a puzzle despite many years of study. We are still awaiting a
Effect of excess Fe on the superconducting and magnetic properties of the FeTe0.70Se0.30 compound
We have studied the properties of stoichiometric FeTe0.7Se0.3 and the effect of Fe excess in this system. The excess Fe compound is shown to display spin glasslike order below 26 K. Microscopic
Universal properties of multilayer high-temperature superconductors: Transition, temperature and a spatial modulation of the gap
We discuss a three-dimensional model high-temperature superconductor, which encompasses both mono- and multilayer systems as planar non-Fermi liquids. Explicitly, we derive the analytic formulae for
