First-Principles Computational Approaches to Superconducting Transition Temperatures: Phonon-Mediated Mechanism and Beyond

The long-sought goal of materials science, the computational discovery of new superconductors, is now becoming possible thanks to recent advances in the first-principles computational methods to calculate the superconducting transition temperature (Tc. We review the theoretical background of such methods, as well as their modern numerical implementations and applications to existing and theoretically predicted materials.
