About this book

This book, written by experts in the fields of atomic physics and nonlinear science, consists of reviews of the current state of the art at the interface of these fields, as is exemplified by the modern theme of Bose-Einstein condensates. Topics covered include bright, dark, gap and multidimensional solitons; vortices; vortex lattices; optical lattices; multicomponent condensates; manipulation of condensates; mathematical methods/rigorous results; and aspects beyond the mean field approach. A distinguishing feature of the contents is the detailed incorporation of both the experimental and theoretical viewpoints through subsections of the relevant chapters.

About the authors

Panayotis G. Kevrekidis received a B.S. in Physics from University of Athens, an M.S., M.Phil and Ph.D in Physics from Rutgers University. After a post-doctoral year between Princeton University and Los Alamos National Lab, he joined the department of Mathematics and Statistics of UMass, Amherst where he is currently an Associate Professor. He has published more than 150 research papers and has received a CAREER award in Applied Mathematics from the U.S. National Science Foundation.

Dimitri J. Frantzeskakis received a Diploma from University of Patras and a PhD Degree from National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), both in Electrical Engineering. After a postdoctoral year at NTUA, he joined the Department of Physics of University of Athens, where he is currently an Associate Professor. His research interests are focused on the dynamics of nonlinear waves and solitons with applications to various physical problems. He has published some 100 research papers.

Ricardo Carretero-González received a summa-cum-laude B.S. in Physics from Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, a MPhil/PhD from Queen Mary, University of London. After a couple of postdocs at University College London and Simon Fraser University, he joined the department of Mathematics and Statistics at San Diego State University where he is currently Associate Professor and co-director of the Nonlinear Dynamical Systems group. He has published some 50 research papers.
