We prove the uniqueness for weak solutions of the time-dependent 2-D Ginzburg-Landau model for superconductivity with L 2 initial data in the case of Coulomb gauge. This question was left open in Tang and Wang (Physica D, 88:139-166, 1995). We also prove the uniqueness of the 3-D radially symmetric solution in bounded annular domain with the choice of Lorentz gauge and L 2 initial data.
