*"Superconductivity"* Parts I and II, R. Parks, Ed.,

"*Superconductivity*,"
by J. B. Ketterson and S. N. Song, (Cambridge University Press, Cambridge,
1999). The book is in three parts: the first deals
with phenomenological aspects of superconductivity, the second with the
microscopic theory of uniform superconductors, and the third with the
microscopic theory of nonuniform superconductors. It presents a series of important
calculations and derivations related to superconductivity.

"*Superconductivity of Metals and Alloys*,"
by P. G. deGennes, (Addison-Wesley, Redwood City, 1989). Starts with a good
phenomenological introduction to superconductivity through its electromagnetic
properties. Interesting
treatment of vortices and the critical state. An idiosyncratic and unique
treatment of the microscopic theory of superconductivity, followed by
development of the Bogolubov-deGennes equations. Concludes with extensive
examples of the use of the Ginsburg-Landau equations to solve many problems in
superconductivity.

“*Superconductivity
of Metals and Cuprates*,” John R. Waldram,

"*Superconductivity
of Transition Metals*," S. V. Vonsovsky, Yu. A. Tzyumov, and E. Z. Kurmaev, (Springer-Verlag,
Berlin, 1982).

"*Superconductor

concerned with the Josephson Effect and related technologies.

Nozieres,

"*Transmission Lines For Digital and
Communication Networks*," Richard E. Matick, IEEE Press,

*"Type II Superconductivity*," D. Saint-James, E. J. Thomas and
G. Sarma,

Pergammon
(1969). Likely the
best discussion of the high field properties of Type II

superconductors. The Bogoliubov deGennes approach is
adopted for the microscopic properties and the discussions of paramagnetic
effects and gapless superconductivity are particularly useful. The G-L
treatment of surface superconductivity is also recommended.
