Solving the Ginzburg-Landau equations by finite-element methods
(American Physical Society, 1992-10)
We consider finite-element methods for the approximation of solutions of the Ginzburg-Landau equations of superconductivity. The methods are based on a discretization of the Euler-Lagrange equations resulting from the ...
Stochastic dynamics of Ginzburg-Landau vortices in superconductors
(American Physical Society, 2001-08-01)
Thermal fluctuations and randomly distributed defects in superconductors are modeled by stochastic variants of the time-dependent Ginzburg-Landau equations. Numerical simulations are used to compare the effects of additive ...
Nucleation of superconductivity in finite anisotropic superconductors and the evolution of surface superconductivity toward the bulk mixed state
(American Physical Society, 2002-02-14)
In anisotropic superconductors having an arbitrary orientation of the sample surface relative to the crystal principal axes, the surface critical field H-c3 is less than 1.695H(c2) unless the field is situated along one ...
