Abstract: We study an energy functional that arises as a $ \Gamma $-limit of the Gross-Pitaevskii (GP) energy. This last functional is often used to model rotating Bose-Einstein condensates, and the functional we study represents the contribution to the GP energy of vortices, or whirlpools, in the condensate. For our energy, we give a rough description of its (local) minimizers using ODE techniques along with an isoperimetric inequality.
