The pairon field operator ψ(r,t) evolves, following Heisenberg’s equation of motion. If the Hamiltonian H contains a condensation energy α0(<0) and a repulsive point-like interparticle interaction , , the evolution equation for ψ is non-linear, from which we derive the Ginzburg-Landau (GL) equation: for the GL wave function where σdenotes the state of the condensed Cooper pairs (pairons), and n the pairon density operator (u and are kind of square root density operators). The GL equation with holds for all temperatures (T) below the critical temperature Tc, where εg(T) is the T-dependent pairon energy gap. Its solution yields the condensed pairon density . The T-dependence of the expansion parameters near Tc obtained by GL: constant is confirmed.
