Abstract: It is known that when the Ginzburg-Landau parameter $ k = 1/\sqrt 2$ the one-dimensional Ginzburg-Landau equations exhibit self-duality and may be reduced into a pair of first-order ODE. The present asymptotic analysis initially focuses on infinite samples of superconductors for which $ \left\vert {k - 1/\sqrt 2 } \right\vert \ll 1$. It is shown that when the value of the applied magnetic field at infinity lies between $ k$ and $ 1/\sqrt 2 $ a superconducting solution exists. It is later shown, for arbitrary values of $ k$, that no solution, other than the normal state, can exist for applied magnetic field values that lie outside the above interval.
