Abstract

The optimized perturbation theory results for the 2D and 3D LLL Ginzburg-Landau model in both vortex liquid and solid phases were obtained. The leading approximant (Gaussian) gave a rigorous upper bound on energy, while the convergent series allowed to make several definitive qualitative conclusions. Comparison with Monte Carlo simulations and some experiments showed excellent agreement.
