By Carlo F. Barenghi

The goal of this primer is to hide the basic theoretical details, speedy and concisely, for you to permit senior undergraduate and starting graduate scholars to take on tasks in topical learn parts of quantum fluids, for instance, solitons, vortices and collective modes.

The collection of the fabric, either concerning the content material and point of presentation, attracts at the authors research of the luck of suitable learn tasks with novices to the sphere, in addition to of the scholars suggestions from many taught and self-study classes at the topic matter.

Starting with a short ancient evaluate, this article covers particle facts, weakly interacting condensates and their dynamics and at last superfluid helium and quantum turbulence.

At the tip of every bankruptcy (apart from the 1st) there'll be a few workouts. specified suggestions will be made on hand to teachers upon request to the authors.

The topic of this booklet is the effective answer of partial differential equations (PDEs) that come up whilst modelling incompressible fluid movement. the fabric is equipped into 4 teams of 2 chapters every one, overlaying the Poisson equation (chapters 1 & 2); the convection-diffucion equation (chapters three & 4); the Stokes equations (chapters five & 6); and the Navier-Stokes equations (chapters 7 & 8).

Hydraulics in civil and environmental engineering

Now in its 5th version, Hydraulics in Civil and Environmental Engineering combines thorough assurance of the fundamental ideas of civil engineering hydraulics with wide-ranging remedy of sensible, real-world functions. This vintage textual content is punctiliously established into components to handle ideas earlier than relocating directly to extra complicated issues.

6 Particle-Wave Overlap Bose–Einstein condensation occurs when N > Nc , with Nc given by Eq. 17). It is equivalent to write this criterion in terms of the number density of particles, n = N /V, as, 3 (2πmkB T )3/2 n>ζ . 21) 2 h3 According to de Broglie, particles behave like waves, with a wavelength λdB = h/ p. h . EmployFor a thermally-excited gas, the particle wavelength is λdB = √ 2πmkB T ing this, the above criterion becomes, nλ3dB > ζ 3 . 22) Upon noting that the average inter-particle distance d = n − 3 and ζ( 23 ) 3 ∼ 1 we arrive at, 1 λdB d.

Note how the distribution changes with N . What form do you expect the distribution to tend towards as N is increased to much larger values? 3 Consider an ideal gas of bosons in two dimensions, confined within a twodimensional box of volume V2D . (a) Derive the density of states g(E) for this two-dimensional system. (b) Using this result show that the number of particles can be expressed as, 30 2 Classical and Quantum Ideal Gases Nex = 2πmV2D kB T h2 ∞ 0 ze−x d x, 1 − ze−x where z = eμ/kB T and x = E/kB T .
