Abstract. We investigate nodal sets of magnetic Schroedinger operators
with zero magnetic field, acting on a non simply connected domain in $\r^2$.
For the case of circulation $1/2$ of the magnetic vector potential around
each hole in the region, we obtain a characterisation of the nodal set, and
use this to obtain bounds on the multiplicity of the groundstate. For the
case of one hole and a fixed electric potential, we show that the first
eigenvalue takes its highest value for circulation $1/2$.
