The stochastic limit of the open BCS model of superconductivity. (English) Zbl 1106.82043

In this paper there are reviewed without proofs some results concerning the open BCS model of low temperature superconductivity. There are also briefly discussed some possible generalizations to the following directions: bosonic second reservoirs, fermionic second reservoirs, and spin-like second reservoirs.
