Three and four-body intervortex forces in the Ginzburg-Landau model of single- and multicomponent superconductivity

Abstract [en]

A systematic numerical study of non-pairwise vortex interaction forces in the Ginzburg-Landau model for single-and multicomponent superconductivity is presented. The interactions are obtained by highly accurate numerical free energy minimization. In particular a three-body interaction is defined as the difference between the total interaction and sum of pairwise interactions in a system of three vortices and such interactions are studied for single and two-component type-1, type-2, and type-1.5 superconductors. In the investigated regimes, the three-body inter action is found to be short-range repulsive but long-range attractive in the type-1 case, zero in the critical kappa (Bogomoln'y) case, attractive in the type-2 case and repulsive in the type-1.5 case. Some systems of four vortices are also studied and results indicate that four-body forces are of substantially less significance than the three-body interactions.
