Subcore Vortex Rings in a Ginsburg-Landau Fluid

  • E. R. Huggins


We will discuss the hydrodynamic limit of the Schrödinger equation, Maxwell’s equations applied to a laser beam, and the Abrahams-Tsuneto1 T = 0 time-dependent Ginsburg—Landau (GL) theory of superconductivity. The main aim will be to illustrate the close relationship between the three theories and to discuss some features of the vortex solutions. Of particular interest will be the subcore vortex rings in the time-dependent GL theory.
