Abstract:

This volume contains the proceedings of the 1999 University of Miami Conference on High Temperature Superconductivity. In addition to addressing physical properties, microscopic theory and mechanisms for high-temperature superconductivity, included are related topics e.g., ladders, manganites, nickelates. The reader will find in this volume a series of papers discussing the most important experimental and theoretical developments as of spring 1999. Despite more than ten years of intensive research on high-Tsub c, materials, there remains considerable controversy both with respect to the interpretation of experiment and even more so in connection with the construction of an appropriate theory. In this regard, conferences such as this, gathering scientists with many viewpoints and varying specializations, and fostering constructive discussions, are important in the development of a common ground. Of major concern in the present context were the basic physical processes involved in high-temperature superconductivity. The conference was held at the James L. Knight Physics Building on the campus of the University of Miami, Coral Gables, January 7 - 13, 1999. More than 100 scientists from more than a dozen countries attended this workshop, most of whom presented either invited or contributed papers.
