First principles calculations beyond s-wave BCS superconductors [closed]

Conventional superconductors are often modelled using Bardeen-Cooper-Schrieffer (BCS) theory with an s-wave order parameter, but not all superconductors describable with BCS theory have an s-wave ...

What limits the accuracy of ab initio methods in predicting the transition temperature of conventional superconductors?

Here I assume that conventional superconductors refer to materials that undergo a superconducting transition at low temperature as described by the Bardeen-Cooper-Schrieffer theory (BCS). For those ...
