Title: Critical fields in Ginzburg-Landau theory in domains with corners

Abstract: The spectral theory of Schr\”{o}dinger operators with magnetic fields on planar domains has seen a surge in activity in the last 10-20 years. In this talk I will overview some old results motivating the relation to the Ginzburg-Landau theory of superconductivity. Furthermore, I will present some recent progress and open problems.
