We have studied various aspects of the critical properties of the Abelian Higgs model. The initial motivation to study this model is its relation to superconductivity, but the results extend beyond the realms of superconductivity. This thesis contains an introductory part and three research papers, all related to different aspects of the Abelian Higgs model.Paper 1: We have investigated the properties of the model using a dual vortex representation. By focusing on the propagators of the gauge…

Interaction between two single type II superconducting vortices inside a superconducting hollow cylindrical domain
Inspired by the seminal, ground-breaking work of Abrikosov in 1957, we developed a new approximation to the interaction between two widely separated superconducting vortices. In contrast with

Flux tubes and the type-I/type-II transition in a superconductor coupled to a superfluid
We analyze magnetic-flux tubes at zero temperature in a superconductor that is coupled to a superfluid via both density and gradient (``entrainment'') interactions. The example we have in mind is
Magnetic field induced finite size effect in type-II superconductors
We explore the occurrence of a magnetic-field-induced finite-size effect on the specific heat and correlation lengths of anisotropic type-II superconductors near the zero-field transition temperature
Type-II Bose-Mott insulators
The Mott insulating state formed from bosons is ubiquitous in solid He-4, cold atom systems, Josephson junction networks and perhaps underdoped high-Tc superconductors. We predict that close to the
Semi-Meissner state and neither type-I nor type-II superconductivity in multicomponent systems
Traditionally, superconductors are categorized as type-I or type-II. Type-I superconductors support only Meissner and normal states, while type-II superconductors form magnetic vortices in
Neutron Stars in the Laboratory
Neutron stars are astrophysical laboratories of many extremes of physics. Their rich phenomenology provides insights into the state and composition of matter at densities which cannot be reached in
ROLE OF ATTRACTIVE INTERACTION IN THE HIGHT C SUPERCONDUCTIVITY *
It is known that due to oxygen-copper virtual charge excitations, there exists an attractive term at the oxygen ion sites that can lead to changes in the on-site energies of oxygen   l  and copper
