Searching for Superconductivity.
David PINES (Department of Physics, University of Illinois)

Jeudi 6 Juin 1996

I will describe, for non-specialists, the search for an understanding of superconductivity and superfluidity in conventional metals, neutron stars, and the high temperature cuprate superconductors.

I will describe the steps leading up to the microscopic theory of Bardeen, Cooper, and Schrieffer, give a progress report on pulsar superfluids, and summarize recent progress and prospects for understanding the high temperature superconductors.
