In 1925 Einstein predicted that at low temperatures particles in a gas could all reside in the same quantum state. This peculiar gaseous state, a Bose-Einstein condensate, was produced in the laboratory for the first time in 1995 using the powerful laser cooling methods developed in recent years. These condensates exhibit quantum phenomena on a large scale, and investigating them has become one of the most active areas of research in contemporary physics. The study of Bose-Einstein condensates in dilute gases encompasses a number of different subfields of physics, including atomic, condensed matter, and nuclear physics. The authors of this textbook explain this exciting new subject in terms of basic physical principles, without assuming detailed knowledge of any of these subfields. This pedagogical approach therefore makes the book useful for anyone with a general background in-Physics, from undergraduates to researchers in the field. Chapters cover the statistical physics of trapped gases, atomic properties, the cooling and trapping of atoms, interatomic interactions, structure of trapped condensates, collective modes, rotating condensates, superfluidity, interference phenomena, and trapped Fermi gases. Problem sets are also included in each chapter.

Christopher Pethick received his D.Phil. degree in 1965 from the University of Oxford. After postdoctoral positions there and at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, he joined the faculty at Illinois in 1970. He is currently professor at Nordita, the Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics in Copenhagen. Henrik Smith obtained his mag. scient. degree in 1966 from the University of Copenhagen, and spent the next few years as a postdoctoral fellow at Cornell University and as a visiting scientist at the Institute for Theoretical Physics, Helsinki. In 1972 he joined the faculty of the University of Copenhagen where he is now a professor at the Orsted Laboratory. The two authors; have worked together on the properties of superconductors and superfluid 3He, in addition to those of dilute quantum gases. This book derives from graduate-level lectures given by the authors at the University of Copenhagen.
