Stability of travelling waves in models of superconductivity

By S. J. Chapman


The linear stability of two travelling waves describing phase changes in superconducting materials is examined. The first describes the change of phase between normally conducting and superconducting states in a type I superconductor, while the second describes the transition from the superconducting state to the mixed state in a type II superconductor
