Bounded vorticity for the 3D Ginzburg-Landau model and an isoflux problem

  title={Bounded vorticity for the 3D Ginzburg-Landau model and an isoflux problem},
  author={Carlos Rom'an and Etienne Sandier and Sylvia Serfaty},
We consider the full three-dimensional Ginzburg–Landau model of superconductivity with applied magnetic field, in the regime where the intensity of the applied field is close to the “first critical field” Hc1 at which vortex filaments appear, and in the asymptotics of a small inverse Ginzburg–Landau parameter ε. This onset of vorticity is directly related to an “isoflux problem” on curves (finding a curve that maximizes the ratio of a magnetic flux by its length), whose study was initiated in…

Vortices in the Magnetic Ginzburg-Landau Model
With the discovery of type-II superconductivity by Abrikosov, the prediction of vortex lattices, and their experimental observation, quantized vortices have become a central object of study in
On the Ginzburg–Landau model of a superconducting ball in a uniform field
Abstract We consider the three-dimensional Ginzburg–Landau model for a solid spherical superconductor in a uniform magnetic field, in the limit as the Ginzburg–Landau parameter κ = 1 / ɛ → ∞ . By
Improved Lower Bounds for Ginzburg-Landau Energies via Mass Displacement
We prove some improved estimates for the Ginzburg-Landau energy (with or without magnetic field) in two dimensions, relating the asymptotic energy of an arbitrary configuration to its vortices and
Ginzburg-Landau minimizers near the first critical field have bounded vorticity
Abstract. We prove that for fields close enough to the first critical field, minimizers of the Ginzburg-Landau functional have a number of vortices bounded independently from the Ginzburg-Landau

The Ginzburg–Landau model is a phenomenological description of superconductivity. A crucial feature of type-II superconductors is the occurrence of vortices, which appear above a certain value of the
Vortex Density Models for Superconductivity and Superfluidity
We study some functionals that describe the density of vortex lines in superconductors subject to an applied magnetic field, and in Bose-Einstein condensates subject to rotational forcing, in quite
A quantization property for static Ginzburg-Landau vortices
For any critical point of the complex Ginzburg-Landau functional in dimension 3, we prove that, for large coupling constants, ; if the energy of this critical point on a ball of a given radius r is
Local Minimizers of the Ginzburg-Landau Energy with Magnetic Field in Three Dimensions
We establish the existence of locally minimizing vortex solutions to the full Ginzburg-Landau energy in three dimensional simply-connected domains with or without the presence of an applied magnetic
Properties of a single vortex solution in a rotating Bose Einstein condensate
Abstract In this Note, we study the properties of the line energy for a vortex γ in a Bose Einstein condensate rotating at velocity Ω . The global minimizer is either the vortex free solution or U
Asymptotics for the Ginzburg–Landau Equation in Arbitrary Dimensions
