The theoretical computation of the superconducting state parameters (SSP) viz; electron-phonon coupling strength λ, Coulomb pseudopotential μ
*, transition temperature T
c, isotope effect exponent α and effective interaction strength N
O
V of some monovalent (Cu and Au), divalent (Ca, Sr, Ba, αHg, βHg and Ra) and polyvalent (Lu, Rh, Sc, Y, La, Pr, Nd, Sm, Gd, Tb, Dy, Ho, Er, Tm, Ac, Th, Hf, Ru, Os, Ir, V, Ta, Pa, Cr, Mo, U, Re, Np and Pu) amorphous metals based on the different groups of the periodic table have been carried out for the first time using the well known Ashcroft’s empty core (EMC) model pseudopotential. Herein, we have employed five different types of local field correction functions proposed by Hartree (H), Taylor (T), Ichimaru-Utsumi (IU), Farid et al. (F) and Sarkar et al. (S) to study the exchange and correlation effects on the present investigations. A very strong influence of all the exchange and correlation functions have been observed in the present study. Our results are in fair agreement with documented theoretical as well as experimental data. A strong dependency of the SSP of amorphous metals on the valency Z was found.
