We study the vortex trajectories for the two-dimensional complex parabolic Ginzburg–Landau equation without a well-preparedness assumption. We prove that the trajectory set is rectifiable, and satisfies a weak motion law. In the case of degree  ±  1 vortices, the motion law is satisfied in the classical sense. Moreover, dissipation occurs only at a finite number of times. Away from these times, possible collisions and splittings of vortices are constrained by algebraic equations involving their… 
Dynamics of Multiple Degree Ginzburg-Landau Vortices
For the two dimensional complex parabolic Ginzburg-Landau equation we prove that, asymptotically, vortices evolve according to a simple ordinary differential equation, which is a gradient flow of the
Limiting Motion for the Parabolic Ginzburg–Landau Equation with Infinite Energy Data
We study a class of solutions to the parabolic Ginzburg–Landau equation in dimension 2 or higher, with ill-prepared infinite energy initial data. We show that, asymptotically, the vorticity evolves

In this paper we describe a natural framework for the vortex dynamics in the parabolic complex Ginzburg-Landau equation in R. This general setting does not rely on any assumption of well-preparedness

In the Ginzburg‐Landau model for superconductivity a large Ginzburg‐Landau parameter κ corresponds to the formation of tight, stable vortices. These vortices are located exactly where an applied
