The rise of the superconducting transition temperature Tc has been reviewed in three major superconducting systems: the cuprate, the Fe-pnictide and the heavy fermion. While the first two systems display high Tcs, heavy fermion superconductors show low Tc but embody many crucial features found in the others. The prospect of future superconductors with higher Tc, preferably close to room temperature, is also discussed. Those interested in the detailed physics of high temperature superconductivity are referred to the article by E. Abrahams in the next chapter of this book and reviews published elsewhere.
