Excitons and Cooper Pairs : Two Composite Bosons in Many-Body Physics

This booklet bridges a spot among significant groups of Condensed subject Physics, Semiconductors and Superconductors, that experience thrived independently. utilizing an unique standpoint that the main debris of those fabrics, excitons and Cooper pairs, are composite bosons, the authors increase primary questions of present curiosity: how does the Pauli exclusion precept wield its energy at the fermionic elements of bosonic debris at a microscopic point and the way this impacts their macroscopic physics?
