In this paper we study the eigenvalue problems for the Ginzburg–Landau operator with a large parameter in bounded domains in [openface R]2 under gauge invariant boundary conditions. The estimates for the eigenvalues are obtained and the asymptotic behavior of the associated eigenfunctions is discussed. These results play a key role in estimating the critical magnetic field in the mathematical theory of superconductivity.
