*H*
- In this equation, is defined from the initial decay rate
of the field, where the supercurrents are largest [35].
However, measurements of involve
a distribution of supercurrent densities over one or more spatial dimensions.
Thus Eq. (2.1) is a more appropriate definition for .

the wave functions
*u* and *v* in the Bogoliubov equations describing
the excited states in the vortex core are single-valued, as discussed in
Ref. [125].

Fourier transform diminishes the signal-to-noise ratio somewhat by weighting
all of the time bins equally.
