The object of this report is to explain
1) the structure sensitive factors affecting the kinetics of the transition
between the normal and superconducting states of selected metals, metal alloys,
and intermetallic compounds, and 2)to explore the area of intermetallic
compounds and compound alloys for new superconductors.
The first five
sections deals with the direct fluctuation pair contributions. The indirect
fluctuation effects are discussed in the last two sections, devoted to the
microscopic justification of the time dependent Ginzburg-Landau equation, the
description of the microscopic theory of fluctuations, and discussion of their
manifestations in various physical properties of superconductors.
