On a degenerate evolution system associated with the Bean critical-state for type II superconductors. (English) Zbl 1470.82039

Summary: We study a degenerate evolution system containing the \(p\)-curl system in a bounded domain with initial and boundary conditions for the magnetic field \(\mathbf{H}\) under the influence of a system force \(\mathbf{F}\). This is concerned with an approximation of Bean’s critical-state model for type II superconductors. We will show the existence, uniqueness, and regularity of solutions. Moreover we will get the properties of the limit solution as \(p \to \infty\).
