Abstract

We introduced two methods to discretize the Ginzburg-Landau equations with the help of link variables. With these equations, we build models to simulate the mixed state of type-II superconductivity. We successfully get Abrikosov vortices by solving both in 2D cases and 3D cases. This tells us that our discretization method and our programs work well and can be used to study the phenomenon of superconductivity.
