Abstract

Result of a fully relativistic local density band calculation for UPt3, which are in excellent agreement with photoemission experiments by Arko et al., are used to study the origin of its observed superconductivity with a conventional approach - the rigid ion approximation and McMillan's theory. We find a highly anisotropic electron-phonon interaction which induces strong superconducting gap anisotropy. The model developed leads to several predictions and a consisted explanation of the unusual properties of UPt3.
