Superconductors (SCs) are beautiful fabrics in all respects for any neighborhood. they supply a deep perception into the actual homes of the condensed issues and now have beneficial purposes as ultra-low-power-dissipation structures which may support unravel the current power difficulties. particularly, the hot development of carbon-based new superconductors (CNSCs) is critical. sooner than 2004, the superconducting transition temperature (Tc) of carbon-based SCs used to be less than 1 ok, other than in fullerene clusters. even if, in 2004, a Russian team chanced on that diamond hugely doped with boron should be an SC at Tc = four ok. the subsequent yr, a gaggle from Cambridge came upon that calcium-intercalated graphite can be an SC with Tc = 11.5 okay. In 2006 and 2008, the editor’s workforce from Japan additionally found that carbon nanotubes might be SCs at Tc = 12 ok. when you consider that then, examine on CNSCs has elevated notably.
A small mass of carbon can produce excessive phonon frequency and excessive Debye temperature. Combining those with different detailed homes of CNSCs (such as one-dimensional digital states) is extremely anticipated to open doorways to high-Tc superconductivity like these of CuO2- and Fe-based SCs, which have been the one SCs to teach Tc > forty ok long ago. CNSCs, akin to diamond, graphite, carbon nanotubes, fullerenes, and others, are a really beautiful box of analysis, and this e-book is the 1st to explain their uncomplicated physics and the hot advances towards excessive Tc during this field.

The topic of $q$-series could be stated to start with Euler and his pentagonal quantity theorem. in truth, $q$-series are often known as Eulerian sequence. Contributions have been made by way of Gauss, Jacobi, and Cauchy, however the first try out at a scientific improvement, in particular from the viewpoint of learning sequence with the goods within the summands, used to be made through E. Heine in 1847. within the latter a part of the 19th and within the early a part of the 20 th centuries, English mathematicians, L. J. Rogers and F. H. Jackson, made basic contributions.In 1940, G. H. Hardy defined what we now name Ramanujan's well-known $_1\psi_1$ summation theorem as 'a amazing formulation with many parameters'. this can be now one of many primary theorems of the topic. regardless of humble beginnings, the topic of $q$-series has flourished some time past 3 many years, fairly with its functions to combinatorics, quantity idea, and physics. in the course of the 12 months 2000, the collage of Illinois embraced The Millennial 12 months in quantity conception. one of many occasions that 12 months was once the convention $q$-Series with functions to Combinatorics, quantity concept, and Physics. This occasion amassed mathematicians from internationally to lecture and talk about their learn. This quantity offers nineteen of the papers offered on the convention. the wonderful lectures which are incorporated chart pathways into the longer term and survey the various purposes of $q$-series to combinatorics, quantity thought, and physics.
