London theory, Landau theory and Lorentz Einstein law

    London theory, Landau theory.... and Lorentz Einstein law

    I am trying to learn all I can about superconductivity and discovered an interesting document in Internet. Does the Lorentz Einstein law hold true for the supercurrent :
    1) of the London approach?
    js = ... ∂θ/∂r - A where θ is the phase and A is the EM potential vector
    2) of the Landau theory?
    3)of the BCS theory?

    One more question : does the London theory include the case of a rotating charge (gyromagnetic effect with A = ω x r)?

    Re: London theory, Landau theory.... and Lorentz Einstein law

    Perhaps should I formulate my question in the opposite way.

    The Landau theory studies in which way an exterior magnetic field interact with a supercurrent.

    What does this theory actually say or propose concerning the interaction of the exterior gravitational field on the same supercurrent? Is that current gravitation-sensitive?
