We consider the standard Ginzburg-Landau system for N-dimensional maps defined in the unit ball for some parameter eps>0. For a boundary data corresponding to a vortex of topological degree one, the aim is to prove the (radial) symmetry of the ground state of the system. We show this conjecture in any dimension N≥7 and for every eps>0, and then, we also prove it in dimension N=4,5,6 provided that the admissible maps are curl-free. This is part of joint works with L. Nguyen, M. Rus, V. Slastikov and A. Zarnescu.
