Families of solutions to the generalized Ginzburg-Landau equation and structural transitions between them

  • Yu. N. Ovchinnikov


Solutions to the generalized Ginzburg-Landau equations for superconductors are obtained for a Ginzburg-Landau parameter κ close to unity. The families of solutions with arbitrary number n of flux quanta in a unit cell are analyzed. It is shown that under certain conditions, a cascade of phase transitions between different structures in a magnetic field appears near T c . Algebraic equations are derived for determining the boundaries of coexistence of different phases on the {T, H 0} plane.
