    • Abstract


      We present a calculation of the isothermal magnetization hysteresis curves appropriate to highTcsuperconductors. We discuss the nature of the low field anomaly as one goes from this strong pinning case to the weak pinning case. We show that the shape of the equilibrium (thermodynamic) magnetization curve is recovered in the limit ofJcapproaching zero.
