We review some recent results on the phenomenon of surface superconductivity in the framework of Ginzburg–Landau theory for extreme type-II materials. In particular, we focus on the response of the superconductor to a strong longitudinal magnetic field in the regime where superconductivity survives only along the boundary of the wire. We derive the energy and density asymptotics for samples with smooth cross section, up to curvature-dependent terms. Furthermore, we discuss the corrections in… 

Almost flat angles in surface superconductivity

Type-II superconductivity is known to persist close to the sample surface in presence of a strong magnetic field. As a consequence, the ground state energy in the Ginzburg–Landau theory is

Derivation of the Ginzburg-Landau Theory for Interacting Fermions in a Trap

We study a dilute gas of interacting fermions at temperature T = 0 and chemical potential µ ∈ R . The particles are trapped by an external potential, and they interact via a microscopic attractive

Effects of corners in surface superconductivity

We study the Ginzburg–Landau functional describing an extreme type-II superconductor wire with cross section with finitely many corners at the boundary. We derive the ground state energy asymptotics

Effects of Boundary Curvature on Surface Superconductivity

We investigate, within 2D Ginzburg-Landau theory, the ground state of a type-II superconducting cylinder in a parallel magnetic field varying between the second and third critical values. In this

The influence of magnetic steps on bulk superconductivity

We study the distribution of bulk superconductivity in presence of an applied magnetic field, supposed to be a step function, modeled by the Ginzburg-Landau theory. Our results are valid for the

We consider the Ginzburg–Landau functional, defined on a two-dimensional simply connected domain with smooth boundary, in the situation when the applied magnetic field is piecewise constant with a
