Semiclassical asymptotics of the ground state energy for the Neumann problem associated with superconductivity. (English) Zbl 1085.35119
Summary: We consider the Neumann-Schrödinger operator in a bounded domain in \(\mathbb{R}^2\). In the case, where the corresponding magnetic field is nonconstant, we get the semiclassical asymptotics with lower order term of the first eigenvalue. This paper is an improvement of results of [B. Helffer and A. Morame, J. Funct. Anal. 185, No. 2, 604–680 (2001; Zbl 1078.81023)] in which they got the asymptotics for the constant magnetic field case.
