Topological aspects of dual superconductors
2004 (English)In: Phys. Rev. B70Article in journal (Refereed) Published
We discuss topological aspects of two-gap superconductors with and without Josephson coupling between gaps. We address nontrivial topological aspects of the dual superconductors and its connections to Meissner effect and flux quantization. The topological knotted string geometry is also discussed in terms of the Hopf invariant, curvature and torsion of the strings associated with U(1)$\times$U(1) gauge group.
