Novel Superfluids: Volume 1

Karl-Heinz Bennemann and John B. Ketterson


This book reports on the latest developments in the field of superfluidity. The phenomenon has had a tremendous impact on the fundamental sciences as well as a host of technologies. It began with the discovery of superconductivity in mercury in 1911, which was ultimately described theoretically by the theory of Bardeen Cooper and Schriever (BCS) in 1957. The analogous phenomena, superfluidity, was discovered in helium in 1938 and tentatively explained shortly thereafter as arising from a Bose–Einstein Condensation by London. But the importance of superfluidity, and the range of systems in whic ... More

Keywords: superfluidity, superconductivity, mercury, Bardeen Cooper, Schriever, helium, exitons, semiconductors, magnons, cold gasses
