Drawing from the huge spectrum of phenomena, defined in additional than 100,000 articles on high-Tc superconductivity, during this publication, the authors examine these easy houses for which realizing will be accomplished in the framework of conventional equipment of theoretical physics. this is often the case of the overdoped cuprates for which the "Bardeen software" has been discovered: we all know their digital spectrum, we will be able to calculate their easy thermodynamic and electrodynamic houses, and expect new phenomena. The booklet offers a pedagogical derivation of formulation describing the electron band constitution, penetration intensity, particular warmth, fluctuation conductivity, and so on. Prediction of plasmons and their program for a brand new form of THz turbines is taken into account to boot. The e-book advocates that the most powerful trade interplay in condensed topic physics -- the intraatomic s-d alternate -- is the lengthy sought pairing mechanism in overdoped cuprate superconductors.
