A new formula for the energy of bulk superconductivity
The energy of a type II superconductor submitted to an external
magnetic field of intensity close to the second critical field
is given by the celebrated Abrikosov energy. If the external
magnetic field is comparable to and below the second critical
field, the energy is given by a reference function obtained as
a special (thermodynamic) limit of a nonlinear energy. In this
note, we give a new formula for this reference energy. In particular,
we obtain it as a special limit of a linear energy defined
over configurations normalized in the $L^4$norm.

The Global Attractor of a Damped, Forced Hirota Equation in $H^1$
The existence of the global attractor of a damped
forced Hirota equation in the phase space $H^1(\mathbb R)$ is proved. The
main idea is to establish the socalled asymptotic compactness
property of the solution operator by energy equation approach.
