    Using quasiclassical theory, we analyze the vortex structure of strong-paramagnetic superconductors. There, induced paramagnetic moments are accumulated exclusively around the vortex core. We quantitatively evaluate the significant paramagnetic effect in the H dependence of various quantities, such as low temperature specific heat, Knight shift, magnetization, and the flux line lattice (FLL) form factor. The anomalous H dependence of the FLL form factor observed by the small angle neutron scattering in CeCo In5 is attributable to the large paramagnetic contribution.
