Literature Request: Introduction to d-wave superconductivity

  1. Oct 7, 2011 #1
    I'm looking for a pedagogic introduction to d-wave superconductivity on the level of field theory.

    Ideally, this would involve a derivation of d-wave superconductivity and the form of the gap parameter from some fundamental Hamiltonian (if such a derivation is even possible yet).

    Books and papers are welcome.

    Hi! There is a very good book by P W Anderson "Theory of High Tc Superconductor", also there is a very good review by P. A. Lee in Review of Modern Physics. The general approach to high Tc is doped Mott insulator.

    Considering his theory is wrong, you might want to take it with a grain of salt.
