The complex Ginzburg-Landau equation (CGL, for short)

$\partial_t u = (1 + i\nu)\Delta u + Ru- (1 + i\mu) |u|^2 u; \quad 0\le t < \infty, x\in\Omega$,

is investigated in a bounded domain ­$\Omega\subset \mathbb R^n$ with suffciently smooth boundary. Standard boundary conditions are considered: Dirichlet, Neumann or periodic. Existence and uniqueness of global smooth solutions is established for all real parameter values $\mu$ and $\nu$ if $n\le 2$, and for certain parameter values $\mu$ and $\nu$ if $n\ge 3$. Furthermore, dynamical properties of the CGL equation, such as existence of determining nodes, are shown. The proof of existence of smooth solutions hinges on the following inequality using the $L^2(\Omega)$-duality,

$|\mathfrak Im$ $<\Delta u ,\ |u|^{p-2}u>\le (|p-2|)/(2\sqrt{p-1})\mathfrak Re$ $< -\Delta u ,\ |u|^{p-2}u >.$
