Joint work with Patricia Bauman and Hala Jadallah.

The initial value problem for the Ginzburg--Landau equations modeling currents in a three--dimensional body surrounded by a vacuum is a mixed, elliptic--parabolic system. We prove existence, uniqueness, and regularity results near the body's surface for solutions. Moreover we compare solutions from different gauges.
