SUMMARY


NOTATION; In this chapter B?denotes the applied magnetic field. In the CGS system
the critical value B of the applied field will be denoted by the symbol He in
accordance
with the custom of workers in superconductivity. Values ofBac are given in gauss in
CGS
units and in teslas in SI units, with I T = 10* G. In SI we have Bac == CloHc-
