Fundamentals and New Frontiers of Bose-Einstein Condensation
by Masahito Ueda
Publisher: World Scientific Publishing Company 2010
Number of pages: 368
This book covers the fundamentals of and new developments in gaseous Bose Einstein condensation. It begins with a review of fundamental concepts and theorems, and introduces basic theories describing Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC). It then discusses some recent topics such as fast-rotating BEC, spinor and dipolar BEC...

Statistical physics is a highly active part of physics. Many types of nonlinear systems are beyond our present understanding and theoretical tools. The purpose of this course is to acquaint you with the central issues of statistical mechanics.

These lectures cover classical and quantum statistical mechanics with some emphasis on classical spin systems. The author gives also an introduction to Bose condensation and superfluidity but he does not discuss phenomena specific to Fermi particles.

These notes provide a self-contained introduction to field theoretic methods employed in the study of classical and quantum phase transitions. Classical phase transitions occur at a regime where quantum fluctuations do not play an important role.
