This article discusses the numerical approximation of time dependent Ginzburg-Landau equations. Optimal error estimates which are robust with respect to a large Ginzburg-Landau parameter are established for a semi-discrete in time and a fully discrete approximation scheme. The proofs rely on an asymptotic expansion of the exact solution and a stability result for degree-one Ginzburg-Landau vortices. The error bounds prove that degree-one vortices can be approximated robustly while unstable higher degree vortices are critical.
