Universal Themes of Bose-Einstein Condensation

Cover

Cambridge University Press, 27.04.2017
Following an explosion of research on Bose–Einstein condensation (BEC) ignited by demonstration of the effect by 2001 Nobel prize winners Cornell, Wieman and Ketterle, this book surveys the field of BEC studies. Written by experts in the field, it focuses on Bose–Einstein condensation as a universal phenomenon, covering topics such as cold atoms, magnetic and optical condensates in solids, liquid helium and field theory. Summarising general theoretical concepts and the research to date - including novel experimental realisations in previously inaccessible systems and their theoretical interpretation - it is an excellent resource for researchers and students in theoretical and experimental physics who wish to learn of the general themes of BEC in different subfields.

Über den Autor (2017)

N. P. Proukakis is a Professor of Quantum Physics at Newcastle University and the Associate Director of the Joint Quantum Centre Durham-Newcastle. He is an expert on finite temperature non-equilibrium modelling of quantum gases, and his research interests span from atomic physics to optical condensates, being mainly focused on universal features, non-equilibrium dynamics, multi-component condensates and superfluid turbulence.

D. W. Snoke is a Professor of Physics at the University of Pittsburgh and a Fellow of the American Physical Society. He is author of over 130 articles and 4 books, including Bose–Einstein Condensation (with A. Griffin and S. Stringari, Cambridge, 1995), one of the first books to survey the phenomenon. His research focuses on non-equilibrium dynamics, semiconductor optics and Bose–Einstein condensation.

P. B. Littlewood is Professor of Physics at the University of Chicago, former Head of the Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge and former Director of Argonne National Laboratory, Illinois. Author of more than 200 articles, he has played an important role in the theory of Bose–Einstein condensation in cold atoms, polaritons and excitonic systems.
