High temperature superconductivity is still one of the most
discussed topicsin physics. "The Physics and Chemistry of
Oxide Superconductors " collects together more than one
hundred original contributions presented during the 2nd
International Symposium of the Institute for Solid State
Physics of the University of Tokyo.
The main topics cover new insights into the basic mechanism
of high temperature superconductivity, recent developments
of new superconducting materials, the state of the art of
thin film production,theoretical understanding of the
electronic structures in this kind of material, theories for
strongly correlated electron systems, and many physical and
chemical effects.
