Synopses & Reviews
The sixth Taniguchi Symposium on the Theory of Condensed Matter was held between 14-18 November 1983 at Kashikojima. Japan. During the Symposium, about twenty participants lived together and discussed the magnetic super- conductors and related problems in an active and friendly atmosphere. This volume contains the papers presented at this Symposium. A strong impetus for organizing a Symposium of this subject is afforded by recent intense interest and accumulated information on magnetic and other novel superconductors newly discovered, and indeed the Symposium has pro- duced many excellent contributions to this very exciting field of condensed matter theory, as reported in this volume. In order to give the readers a general outline of the subject, a brief sketch of the problem is made in the Introduction. Then the remainder of this volume is divided into four Parts and an Appendix. Part I is devoted to di scuss ions on several aspects of ferromagnetic superconductors includ ing superconductivity in heavy fermion systems. Part II treats problems on anti- ferromagnetic superconductors. In Part III three papers on organic supercon- ductors are presented. Part IV includes discussions on the exotic supercon- ductors. The Appendix is concerned with the new research project towards high Tc superconductors in Japan. The last but not least remark is to mention the activity of the Taniguchi Foundation whose support makes this Symposium possible. For many years Mr.
