In solid state physics, superconductivity is an extremely important topic, because it is one of the phenomena with universality. The quantum mechanical phase of the electrons in some sense gains rigidity as if it were a rigid body, and as a result the properties of the quantum wave show up at the macroscopic level. In this chapter, several problems related to this quantal phase are discussed.
