Nonlinear Phenomena in Quantum Degenerate Gases
13 Apr 2010 - 17 Apr 2010
This biannual conference aims to bridge the areas of nonlinear physics and solitons with the field of quantum degenerate gases, specifically Bose-Einstein condensates and degenerate Fermi gases, stimulating the interaction between the different communities working in these fields: experimentalists dedicated to quantum degenerate gases, theoretical physicists studying different aspects of cold atoms and experts on solitons and nonlinear phenomena (usually mathematical physicists and mathematicians). Specific topics include but are not restricted to: solitons and nonlinear waves in Bose-Einstein condensates and Fermi gases, the interplay between nonlinearity and disorder in cold quantum gases, collapse phenomena, chaos in quantum degenerate gases, turbulent behavior in cold quantum gases, effects of dimension (dimensional reduction, multidimensional patterns, ...), nonlinear phenomena in Boson-fermion mixtures, stabilized structures, nonlinear dynamics in spinor BECs, exciton-polariton and magnon condensates, interaction of nonlinear waves with potentials, solitary wave collisions, localized structures in strongly correlated systems, finite temperature solitons, pattern formation and applicability to BEC, nonlinear phenomena in dipolar Bose-Einstein condensates, Josephson effects with Bose-Einstein condensates, nonlinear dynamics in Bose-Hubbard models, quantum fluids and their connection with quantum gases, analogies between strongly interacting quantum gases and other physical systems like laser beam propagation, nonlinear phenomena for quantum computing using quantum degenerate gases, mathematical and numerical methods for the analysis of quantum degenerate gases, the mathematical analysis of models arising in the field of cold quantum gases, among other related topics. Registration will be open untill December, 15th 2009.
