We study the many body quantum evolution of bosonic systems in the mean field limit. The dynamics is known to be well approximated by the Hartree equation. So far, the available results have the form of a law of large numbers. In this paper we go one step further and we show that the fluctuations around the Hartree evolution satisfy a central limit theorem. Interestingly, the variance of the limiting Gaussian distribution is determined by a time-dependent Bogoliubov transformation describing… 

Mean–Field Evolution of Fermionic Systems

The mean field limit for systems of many fermions is naturally coupled with a semiclassical limit. This makes the analysis of the mean field regime much more involved, compared with bosonic systems.

Beyond Bogoliubov dynamics

We consider a quantum system of N interacting bosons in the mean field scaling regime. We construct corrections to the Bogoliubov dynamics that approximate the true N-body dynamics in norm to

We consider the dynamics of a large system of $N$ interacting bosons in the mean-field regime where the interaction is of order $1/N$. We prove that the fluctuations around the nonlinear Hartree

It is shown that fluctuations around the limiting Hartree dynamics satisfy large deviation estimates that are consistent with central limit theorems that have been established in the last years.

Quantum Dynamics, Coherent States and Bogoliubov Transformations

Systems of interest in physics are usually composed by a very large number of interacting particles. At equilibrium, these systems are described by stationary states of the many-body Hamiltonian (at

We propose a new approach for the study of the time evolution of a factorized N-particle bosonic wave function with respect to a mean-field dynamics with a bounded interaction potential. The new
