Ginzburg-Landau vortices, Coulomb gases, and Abrikosov lattices

Sylvia Serfaty

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review


This is a review of a mathematical analysis of vortices in the Ginzburg-Landau model: phase transitions and effective energies that govern optimal patterns formed by the vortices, in particular the Abrikosov lattice, are discussed. Analogies with Coulomb gases are also mentioned.
