This book should fill a gap which has existed in the literature on superconductivity. There have been a number of excellent textbooks available on the phenomenon of superconductivity, which describe in detail the variety of effects connected with it and the mathematical techniques to deal with them properly. However, until now there has not been a textbook available in English which concentrates on the material aspects of superconductivity. This is a major shortcoming since most physicists working in the field of superconductivity are mainly concerned with specific materials and subsequently often need to know more about the interplay of superconductivity and material properties. On the other hand, people working in the field know that a competent and well-written book by S.V. Vonsovsky, Y.A. Izyumov, and E.Z. Kurmaev has been available in Russian. It presents a thorough discussion of superconducting transition-metal alloys and compounds.

I sincerely hope that the book will turn out to be useful to physicists working in the field of superconductivity as well as to nonspecialists and interested graduate students.
