We construct a solution to the complex Ginzburg-Landau equation, which blows up in finite time T only at one blow-up point. We also give a sharp description of its blow-up profile. The proof relies on the reduction of the problem to a finite-dimensional one, and the use of index theory to conclude. Two major difficulties arise in the proof: the linearized operator around the profile is not self-adjoint and it has a second neutral mode. In the last section, the interpretation of the parameters of the finite-dimensional problem in terms of the blow-up time and the blow-up point gives the stability of the constructed solution with respect to perturbations in the initial data.
