The authors consider the Ginzburg-Landau model for superconductivity. First some well-known features of superconducting materials are reviewed and then various results concerning the model, the resultant differential equations, and their solution on bounded domains are derived. Then, finite element approximations of the solutions of the Ginzburg-Landau equations are considered and error estimates of optimal order are derived.
