Description - Excitations in a Bose-condensed Liquid by Allan Griffin

This volume gives an up-to-date, systematic account of the microscopic theory of Bose-condensed fluids developed since the late 1950s. The core of the present book is the development of the field-theoretic analysis needed to deal with a Bose-condensed fluid. However, the author also brings out the essential physics behind the formal Green's function techniques and presents plausible scenarios to understand recent high resolution neutron and Raman scattering data. The first three chapters give a useful overview and introductory material while the concluding chapter gives an assessment and suggestions for further research.

His research has been on superfluid He4, superconductivity and theory of ultracold atoms. He has been a short-term visiting professor at the ANU in Canberra (Australia), the College de France in Paris, and the University of Otago (New Zealand). Dr Griffin is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada (2003), a Fellow of the American Physical Society (2004), and received the Bronze Medal from the College de France (2001). He is the author of a monograph on Bose liquids (1993) and the editor of a well-known book on Bose-Einstein condensation (1995), both published by Cambridge.
