Heavy Fermion metals are intermetallics containing lanthanide or
actinide elements. These systems provide a multitude of unconventional
superconductivity scenarios including multiple superconducting phases as
well as co-existence and competiton with other ordering phenomena. Of
particular interst is the fact that superconductivity occurs close to a
Quantum Critical Point in many Heavy Fermion systems. I will give a
brief overview of Heavy Fermion superconductors and then focus on
theoretical challenges and recent surprises in Heavy Fermion physics.
