Comunicazione presentata al XVI Congresso U.M.I.


We describe an approach via Gamma-convergence to the asymptotic behaviour of minimizers of complex Ginzburg-Landau functionals in any space dimension. This paper (in italian) is an extended version of a talk delivered at the XVI congress of the Italian Mathematical Union, and summarizes some of the results obtained in a joint work with S. Baldo (Trento) and G. Orlandi (Verona).

Keywords: Gamma-convergence, Ginzburg-Landau functionals, area functional, distributional Jacobians
