Abstract: The structure function of the vortex lattice of layered superconductor iscalculated to one-loop order. Based on a phenomenological melting criterionconcerning the Debye-Waller factor, we calculate the melting line of the vortexlattice, and compare our results to Monte Carlo simulation and experiment. Wefind that our results are quantitatively in good agreement with the Monte Carloresults. Moreover, our analytic calculation of the melting line of BSCCO fitsthe experiment reasonably well in a temperature range not far from Tc.
