This text is on the modern theory of superconductivity, It deals with the behavior of superconductors in external fields varying in time, and with transport phenomena in superconductors. The book starts with the fundamentals of the first-principle, microscopy theory of superconductivity, and guides the reader through the modern theoretical analysis directly to applications of the theory to practical problems.
The reader of this book will learn about the methods of quantum field theory applied to nonstationary superconductivity in their most advanced formulation, namely about the so-called semi-classical version of the real-time Green's function technique applied to the celebrated Barbeen, Cooper, and Schrieffer model of superconductivity. A considerable part of the book is devoted to vortex dynamics, dealing with the behavior of superconductors in the most practical situation when they carry electric currents in the presence of a magnetic field.

Nikolai Kopnin is Professor at the Helsinki University of Technology, and L.D. Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics in Moscow.Review:
"A good well-written text for professional theoretical physicists and graduate students in condensed-matter theory. Experimental physicists with an interest in theory will be able to follow parts of the book. The presentation of TDGL theory in part IV is particularly readable and constitutes a
uniquely clear presentation of this topic."
"Contains a unique presentation of non-equilibrium properties of superconductors, transport properties and vortex dynamics."
