On the hydrodynamic limit of Ginzburg-Landau vortices

Fanghua Lin, Ping Zhang

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Here we started with the dynamical law for finitely many Ginzburg-Landau vortices which was proved in [LX]. Then use the point vortex method (and the earlier vortex-method) for incompressible Euler equations in 2-D to rigorously establish the hydrodynamic limit for such finite vortices dynamics. We finally establish various existence and uniqueness of global dissipative solutions to the hydrodynamic limiting equations.
