On the ground state energy for a magnetic Schrödinger operator and the effect of the de Gennes boundary condition
Comptes Rendus. Mathématique, Volume 342 (2006) no. 9, pp. 701-706.

Motivated by the Ginzburg–Landau theory of superconductivity, we estimate the ground state energy of a magnetic Schrödinger operator with de Gennes boundary condition in the semi-classical limit and we study the localization of the corresponding ground states. We exhibit cases when the de Gennes boundary condition has a strong effect on this localization.

Motivé par la théorie de Ginzburg–Landau de supraconductivité, nous estimons dans le régime semi-classique l'énergie de l'état fondamental d'un opérateur de Schrödinger avec champ magnétique et condition au bord de de Gennes. Nous obtenons des cas où la condition au bord de de Gennes a un effet fort sur cette localisation.
