Conventional Bose-Einstein Condensation (BEC): Ideal Bose-gas

Special Events

Speaker: Valentin Zagrebnov, Universite Aix-Marseille and Centre de Physique Theorique Luminy, France
Location: 1147 MSB
Start time: Wed, Jun 6 2012, 1:40PM

The conventional one-mode BEC in the ideal boson gas is the key example for this series of lectures. The physical motivation (Einstein, 1925) and the later theoretical and mathematical controversy (G.E.Uhlenbeck, 1927, F.London, 1938) will be presented in details as well as remark on equivalence of ensembles and M.Kac distribution (1973).

This is the introductory seminar for the lecture series "Lectures on Boson Systems: Condensation and Dynamics" by Prof. Valentin Zagrebnov. Prof. Zagrebnov is a world expert on Bose-Einstein condensation.
