Abstract
The Eliashberg spectral density function is constructed for the newly disco vered MgB2. The model function shows spreading spectra that are nearly simi lar to those from first principles calculation. It provides a good descript ion of the physical properties of MgB2. The results of the analysis are con sistent with a phonon-mediated superconductivity, with a rather strong coup ling (lambda = 0.9). (C) 2001 Published by Elsevier Science B.V.
