Deformations of nearly parallel G_2-structuresJan 11 2011We study the infinitesimal deformations of a proper nearly parallel G_2-structure and prove that they are characterized by a certain first order differential equation. In particular we show that the space of infinitesimal deformations modulo the group ... More
Bipolaronic proximity and other unconventional effects in cuprate superconductorsJan 24 2008Feb 04 2008There is compelling evidence for a strong electron-phonon interaction (EPI) in cuprate superconductors from the isotope effects on the supercarrier mass, high resolution angle resolved photoemission spectroscopies (ARPES), a number of optical and neutron-scattering ...

Unconventional superconducting pairing by conventional phononsMay 18 2007May 29 2007The common wisdom that the phonon mechanism of electron pairing in the weak-coupling Bardeen-Cooper-Schrieffer (BCS) superconductors leads to conventional s-wave Cooper pairs is revised. An inevitable anisotropy of sound velocity in crystals makes the ... More
Strong-coupling superconductivity beyond BCS and the key pairing interaction in cuprate superconductorsDec 23 2010Dec 24 2010It has been now over 20 years since the discovery of the first high temperature superconductor by Georg Bednorz and Alex Mueller in 1986 and yet, despite intensive effort, no universally accepted theory exists about the origin of high-temperature superconductivity. ...

Strong-Coupling Theory of High Temperature SuperconductivityAug 31 2005Dec 28 2005High-temperature superconductivity (HTS) of cuprates represents a challenge to the conventional theory. Here I review a multi-polaron approach to the problem based on our extension of the BCS theory to the strong-coupling regime. Since there is almost ... More
