Ginzburg-Landau Vortex Lines and the Elastica Functional

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We examine the asymptotic behavior of a family of second-order functionals arising in the theory of Ginzburg-Landau vortices. The results point towards Gamma-convergence with the elastica functional for generalized curves as the limit.
