Quantitative erivation of the Gross-Pitaevskii equation


Benedikter, Niels; de Oliveira, Gustavo; Schlein, Benjamin (2015). Quantitative erivation of the Gross-Pitaevskii equation. Communications on Pure and Applied Mathematics, 68(8):1399-1482.

Abstract

Starting from first-principle many-body quantum dynamics, we show that the dynamics of Bose-Einstein condensates can be approximated by the time-dependent nonlinear Gross-Pitaevskii equation, giving a bound on the rate of the convergence. Initial data are constructed on the bosonic Fock space applying an appropriate Bogoliubov transformation on a coherent state with expected number of particles $\mathit{N}$. The Bogoliubov transformation plays a crucial role; it produces the correct microscopic correlations among the particles. Our analysis shows that, on the level of the one-particle reduced density, the form of the initial data is preserved by the many-body evolution, up to a small error that vanishes as $\mathit{N}^{-1/2}$ in the limit of large $\mathit{N}$.
