Abstract
We revisit the old problem of exotic superconductivity as Cooper pairing with finite angular momentum emerging from a central potential. Based on some general considerations, we suggest that the phenomenon is associated with interactions that keep electrons at some particular, finite distance r(0), and occurs at a range of intermediate densities n similar to 1/r(0)(3). We discuss the ground state and the critical temperature in the framework of a standard functionalintegral theory of the BCS to Bose crossover. We find that, due to the lower energy of twobody bound states with l = 0, the rotational symmetry of the ground state is always restored on approaching the Bose limit. Moreover in that limit the critical temperature is always higher for pairs with l = 0. The breaking of the rotational symmetry of the continuum by the superfluid state thus seems to be a property of weaklyattractive, nonmonotonic interaction potentials, at intermediate densities.
