At super low temperatures, clouds of bosonic atoms shape what's often called a Bose-Einstein condensate. lately, it has turn into transparent that many differing kinds of condensates -- so known as fragmented condensates -- exist. so one can inform even if fragmentation happens or no longer, it will be important to resolve the entire many-body Schrödinger equation, a role that remained elusive for experimentally suitable stipulations for a few years. during this thesis the 1st numerically designated options of the time-dependent many-body Schrödinger equation for a bosonic Josephson junction are supplied and in comparison to the approximate Gross-Pitaevskii and Bose-Hubbard theories. it's thereby proven that the dynamics of Bose-Einstein condensates is way extra difficult than one may count on according to those approximations. a distinct conceptual innovation during this thesis are optimum lattice versions. it truly is proven how all quantum lattice types of condensed topic physics which are according to Wannier capabilities, e.g. the Bose/Fermi Hubbard version, should be optimized variationally. This results in interesting new physics.

At super low temperatures, clouds of bosonic atoms shape what's referred to as a Bose-Einstein condensate. lately, it has turn into transparent that many differing types of condensates -- so known as fragmented condensates -- exist. that allows you to inform no matter if fragmentation happens or no longer, it's important to resolve the entire many-body Schrödinger equation, a job that remained elusive for experimentally proper stipulations for a few years.
This e-book examines the character of the coherent excitation produced in atoms via lasers. It examines the exact temporary edition of excited-state populations with time and with controllable parameters reminiscent of laser frequency and depth. The dialogue assumes modest past wisdom of effortless quantum mechanics and, in a few sections, nodding acquaintance with Maxwell's equations of electrodynamics.
Advances within the physics and chemistry of low-dimensional structures were relatively great within the previous few a long time. enormous quantities of quasi-one-dimensional and quasi-two-dimensional structures were synthesized and studied. the preferred representatives of quasi-one-dimensional fabrics are polyacethylenes CH  and carrying out donor-acceptor molecular crystals TIF z TCNQ.

The natural orbitals and natural geminals of the system are obtained and discussed. It is shown how the fragmentation of the condensate can be understood in terms of its natural geminals. The many-body results are compared to those of mean-field theory. The best solution within mean-field theory is obtained and the limits in which mean-field theories are valid are determined. In these limits the behavior of the correlation functions is explained within an analytical model. The results of this Chapter were first published in Ref.
