A hierarchy of models for superconducting thin films

Abstract:

A hierarchy of models for type-II superconducting thin films is presented. Through appropriate asymptotic limits this hierarchy passes from the mesoscopic Ginzburg--Landau model to the London model with isolated vortices as $\delta$-function singularities to vortex-density models and finally to macroscopic critical-state models. At each stage it is found that a key nondimensional parameter is $\Lambda = \lambda^2/d L$, where $\lambda$ is the penetration depth of the magnetic field, a material...
