Abstract

We show that there exists multi-vortex, non-radial, finite energy solutions to the magnetic Ginzburg-Landau equations on all of ${\mathbb{R}^2}$ . We use Lyapunov-Schmidt reduction to construct solutions which are invariant under rotations by ${\frac{2 \pi}{k}}$ (but not by rotations in O(2) in general) and reflections in the x− axis for some k ≥ 7.
