Abstract. We review the recent progress in the theory of inhomogeneous superconductors. It was shown that Gor'kov's self-consistency equation needs a pairing constraint derived from the Anomalous Green's function. The Bogoliubov-de Gennes equations also need a pairing constraint in order to obtain a correct vacuum state by the corresponding unitary transformation. This new study opens up a reinvestigation of inhomogeneous superconductors. We discuss (i) problems of the conventional Green's function theory, (ii) reinvestigation of impure superconductors, and (iii) impurity doping effect in high $T_{c}$ superconductors. It is also pointed out that a new formalism is required to tackle the macroscopically or mesoscopically inhomogeneous systems such as the junction and the vortex problems.
