We study the Ginzburg–Landau equations on Riemann surfaces of arbitrary genus. In particular, we – construct explicitly the (local moduli space of gauge-equivalent) solutions in the neighborhood of the constant curvature ones; – classify holomorphic structures on line bundles arising as solutions to the equations in terms of the degree, the Abel–Jacobi map, and symmetric products of the surface; – determine the form of the energy and identify when it is below the energy of the constant curvature (normal) solutions.
