Abstract : Reasonable and consistent approximations are used to reduce the simplified form of the integral equations for the superconducting transition temperature used by Allender, Bray and Bardeen to a very simple, and remarkably accurate, equation for (T sub c). This equation is compared with the McMillan equation and found to give just as good agreement with experiment for intermediate coupling materials and considerably better agreement for strong-coupling materials.
