This course provides an introduction to superconductivity, covering both experimental as well as theoretical aspects.
After a historical overview and a presentation of the basic phenomena we will discuss Ginzburg Landau theory, BSC theory, Josephson effects, and end with a short introduction to unconventional (including high-Tc) superconductivity.
Slides on Josephson Junctions and notes on Josephson Junctions
Notes on dimensionless Ginzburg-Landau equations
Notes on the Ginzburg criterion
Notes on Goldstone modes and the Anderson-Higgs mechanism
Presentation by Manuel Chinotti

The exercise class is an integral part of the course where we cover additional examples and look at certain aspects of the lecture in more detail. We do both analytical and numerical calculations. We may also discuss some papers.
The exercise sheets will be available online or distributed in class on demand. You have one week to work on them on your own, then they are discussed during the exercise class at the "discussion date".
All students are invited to make additional suggestions for the exercise class.
