## Proceedings of the Thirteenth Physics Summer School: Bose-Einstein Condensation : from Atomic Physics to Quantum Fluids : Canberra, Australia, 17-28 January 2000Bose-Einstein condensation of dilute gases is an exciting new field of interdisciplinary physics. The eight chapters in this volume introduce its theoretical and experimental foundations. The authors are lucid expositors who have also made outstanding contributions to the field. They include theorists Tony Leggett, Allan Griffin and Keith Burnett, and Nobel-Prize-winning experimentalist Bill Phillips. In addition to the introductory material, there are articles treating topics at the forefront of research, such as experimental quantum phase engineering of condensates, the ?superchemistry? of interacting atomic and molecular condensates, and atom laser theory. |
