We have shown earlier that the upper critical field Hc2 of -superconductor in a magnetic field in the (a,b)-plane exhibits the fourfold symmetry, though this anisotropy vanishes like as the temperature T approaches the transition temperature Tc. We propose here that the torque within the (a,b)-plane should provide a sensitive means to determine this anisotropy.
