Inhomogeneous Superconducting Materials: Dynamic and Static Problems

10:30 AM-12:30 PM
Room: Sidney Smith 2130

In recent years, the mathematical understanding of superconductivity models has developed considerably. In particular the Ginzburg Landau model has received much attention in mathematical community. One hopes that a deeper mathematical understanding will help to explain experimental results and also suggest new experimental directions and improvement in the design of superconducting materials. The minisymposium will bring together representatives of both theoretical and experimental groups to transfer problems, ideas and methods from one community to another so as to enhance further progress in the understanding of this class of problems.
