The six major properties of a superconductor are: zero resistance, sharp phase change, Meissner effect, flux quantization, Josephson effects, and excitation-energy gaps. These properties all arise from the motion of a supercondensate in the conductor below the critical temperature \(T_{c}\). In the present text we have examined these and other properties from a quantum statistical mechanical point of view.
