Abstract:
**

The theory of Fermi liquid superconductivity combines two important theories
for correlated electrons in metals, Landau's theory of Fermi liquids and the BCS theory
of superconductivity. These lecture notes summarize the conceptual framework
of the Fermi liquid theory of superconductivity, decribes the fundamental
equations and their basis as an expansion in low-energy and long-wavelength
scales compared to microscopic scales set by the normal metallic state,
and finally recent applications of this theory to transport and vortex dynamics
in layered, high T_{c} superconductors.
