On some mathematical tools for the analysis of the Ginzburg-Landau model of superconductivity

  • Carlos Román Parra (Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile)
E2 10 (Leon-Lichtenstein)


In this talk I will review some mathematical tools developed to characterize the behavior of vortices in the magnetic Ginzburg-Landau model of superconductivity. Vortices are quantized topological singularities that appear above a certain critical intensity of the applied magnetic field. Particular attention will be put to describe their location and number for energy-minimizers.
