Abstract: The focus of the minisymposium is on mathematical problems related to Ginzburg-Landau model with application in physics and materials science including but not limited to: superconductivity, superfluidity, liquid crystals, and polymers. The speakers in this minisymposium will describe their recent research, including the development and structure of singular solutions of the Ginzburg-Landau-type problems and the dynamics of vortex motion. This minisymposium is sponsored by the SIAM Activity Group on Mathematical Aspects of Materials Science (SIAG/MS).
