Derivation of the Gross-Pitaevskii equation

Benjamin Schlein
Department of Mathematics, UC Davis

Abstract:

In this talk, I am going to discuss some recent resultsconcerning the derivation, from many body quantum mechanics, of acubic nonlinear Schroedinger equation, known as the Gross-Pitaevskiiequation, for the dynamics of Bose-Einstein condensation. This is ajoint work with L. Erdos and H.-T. Yau.
