These modes can be thought of as arising from independent relative motions of vortices, and the fact that they are energy-neutral relates to the vanishing of the vortex interaction at κ = 1/2 [14,92]. Two of the modes arise from translational symmetry, while careful analysis shows that as κ moves above (respectively below) 1/2, the 2|n| − 2 “extra” modes become unstable (respectively stable) directions. Technically, it is convenient, on the first step, to effectively remove the (infinitedimensional subspace of) gauge-symmetry zero modes, by modifying L(n) to make it coercive in the gauge directions—this leaves only the two zero modes arising from translational invariance remaining.

Moreover, Odeh has also given a detailed sketch of the proof, with details in Ref. , of the existence of Abrikosov solutions using the variational minimization of the Ginzburg–Landau energy functional reduced to a fundamental cell of the underlying lattice. However, this proof provides only very limited information about the solutions. Chapman  and Almag  gave a detailed analysis of extension of Abrikosov solutions to higher magnetic fluxes per fundamental cells. Moreover, important and fairly detailed results on asymptotic behavior of solutions, for κ → ∞ and the applied magnetic fields, h, satisfying h ≤ 12 log κ+const (the London limit), were obtained by Aydi and Sandier  (see Ref.
