    I have added these pointers:

    • S. J. Chapman, A Hierarchy of Models for Type-II Superconductors, IAM Review Vol. 42, No. 4 (Dec., 2000), pp. 555-598 (jstor:2653134)

    • Carsten Timm, Theory of Superconductivity, 2020 (pdf)

    What I was really looking for is a citable source whose author would state clearly that the flux/vortex quantization is mathematically due to the one-point compactification of the transversal plane being the 2-sphere, whose π 2\pi_2 is \mathbb{Z}.

    Of course if one knows this then one can recognize this is as being the secret underlying reason of the usual arguments (e.g. Chapman 2.33 or Timm p. 27), but I was hoping a published author would more openly admit this.

    The closest I have found is p. 6-7 (Section IV.B) of

    which comes closer to making this explicit.

    Am preparing an illustration of fluxon quantization in superconductors. A first version is here. Not included on the nLab page yet, as I need to call it quits for tonight.

    Now I have written a few lines in a new section Magnetic flux quantization in type II superconductors, including those graphics.

    I think I’ll want to give that paragraph a little stand-alone entry of its own, for ease of cross-linking elsewhere (such as at Dirac charge quantization, magnetic charge, vortex and maybe elsewhere, too)
