Abstract

Type-II superconductivity is a prime example of how an old subject, which had been considered closed, at least in principle, many years ago, can not only be revived, but reveal a surprising variety of new physics upon the discovery of a new aspect. In this case, the aspect bearing qualitatively new features was a more thorough approach towards disorder.
