TITLE: The stability of the normal state of superconductors in the
       presence of electric currents and magnetic fields
PLACE: Room 814, Amado Mathematics Building, Technion
TIME: 14:30
ABSTRACT: We consider the linearization of the time-dependent
Ginzburg-Landau near the normal state. We assume that an electric current
is applied through the sample, which captures the half-plane, inducing
thereby, a magnetic field. We evaluate the critical current, for which
the normal state loses its stability, in the limits of small and large
normal conductivity.
