Novel Superfluids: Volume 2

K H Bennemann (Editor), John B Ketterson (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This volume continues the presentation of recent results on superfluids, including novel metallic systems, superfluid liquids, and atomic/molecular gases of bosons and fermions, particularly when trapped in optical lattices. Since the discovery of superconductivity (Leyden, 1911), superfluid4 He (Moscow and Cambridge, 1937), superfluid3 He (Cornell, 1972), and observation Bose–Einstein condensation (BEC) of a gas (Colorado and MIT, 1995), the phenomenon of superfluidity has remained one of the most important topics in physics. Again and again, novel superfluids yield surprising and interesting behaviors. The many classes of metallic superconductors, including the high temperature perovskite-based oxides, MgB2, organic systems, and Fe-based pnictides, continue to offer challenges; the technical applications grow steadily. What the temperature and field limits are remains elusive. Atomic nuclei, neutron stars, and the Universe itself all involve various aspects of superfluidity; clearly the lessons learned have had a broad impact on physics as a whole.
