Non-pairwise intervortex interaction forcesPhysics Department Faculty Publication Series
AbstractWe demonstrate the existence of a new kind of non-pairwise multivortex interaction forces, which are present between superconducting vortices along with pairwise vortex interactions. We show that the multibody forces are especially important in compact vortex clusters in two-component type-1.5 superconductors and result in extremely rich physics of multivortex bound states.
