Homework Help: Ginzburg-Landau Equations

  1. Jan 28, 2006 #1
    hi

    I have problem with deriving the 1st Ginzburg-Landau Equations from the free energy F of a superconductor. I don't expect a full derivation but if possible I would appreciate any pointers

    Thanks in advance

    I think you can find it in Goldenfield's Lectures on phase transitions and the renormalization group, or possibly Stanley's Introduction to phase transitions and critical phenomena.

    Hope this helps.
