Derivation of the Gross-Pitaevskii equation: the case of strong interaction potential

Friday, February 22, 2008 -
4:00pm to 6:00pm
In this talk I am going to present recent results obtained in collaboration with L. Erdoes and H.-T. Yau concerning the derivation of a certain cubic nonlinear Schroedinger equation, known as the Gross-Pitaevskii equation, from first principle many body quantum dynamics. With respect to previous results, we can now relax the smallness condition on the interaction potential.
