We consider the Bogolubov-de Gennes equations giving an equivalent formulation of the BCS theory of superconductivity. We are interested in the case when the magnetic field is present. We (a) discuss their general features, (b) isolate key physical classes of solutions (normal, vortex and vortex lattice states) and (c) prove existence of the normal, vortex and vortex lattice states and stability/instability of the normal states for large/small temperature or/and magnetic fields. 

On the Hartree-Fock-Bogoliubov equations

We review some results of our paper arXiv:1602.05171v2 on the "nonlinear quasifree approximation" to the many-body Schr\"odinger dynamics of Bose gases. In that paper, we derive, with the help of

The Dirac–Frenkel Principle for Reduced Density Matrices, and the Bogoliubov–de Gennes Equations

The derivation of effective evolution equations is central to the study of non-stationary quantum many-body systems, and widely used in contexts such as superconductivity, nuclear physics,

A lower bound for the BCS functional with boundary conditions at infinity

We consider a many-body system of fermionic atoms interacting via a local pair potential and subject to an external potential within the framework of Bardeen-Cooper-Schrieffer (BCS) theory. We

On Derivation of the Poisson–Boltzmann Equation

Starting from the microscopic reduced Hartree–Fock equation, we derive the macroscopic linearized Poisson–Boltzmann equation for the electrostatic potential associated with the electron density.

We review very briefly the main mathematical structures and results in some important areas of Quantum Mechanics involving PDEs and formulate open problems.

The Bardeen-Cooper-Schrieffer (BCS) functional has recently received renewed attention as a description of fermionic gases interacting with local pairwise interactions. We present here a rigorous

In spaces with constant curvature, magnetic trajectories of a Killing magnetic field are showed to be centerlines of Kirchhoff elastic rods. If the space is also simply connected, then a Killing
