This book on Bose–Einstein condensation (BEC) and superfluidity, is an extended version of the notable work by the pioneering researchers Sandro Stringari and Lev Pitaevskii, which first appeared in 2003. The first edition appeared to be a detailed version of a review paper ‘Theory of BEC in trapped gases’ that appeared in the Review of Modern Physics in 1999 by the same authors and their two other colleagues. Back in 2005, my research career started with this book and gave me a fresh feeling…

Second Quantized Landau Variables in the Case of Dilute Bose-Einstein Condensates
Landau was the first to advance hydrodynamic concepts such as density and velocity to describe the superfluidity of liquid He$^4$. Due to the recent spectacular success of experiments demonstrating
Dark Matter Superfluidity
In this talk I summarize a novel framework that unifies the stunning success of MOND on galactic scales with the triumph of the $\Lambda$CDM model on cosmological scales. This is achieved through the

Atomtronics experiments with ultracold atomic gases allow us to explore quantum transport phenomena of a weakly-interacting Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC). Here, we focus on two-terminal transport of
Spin-orbit-coupling induced localization in the expansion of an interacting Bose-Einstein condensate
By developing a hydrodynamic formalism, we investigate the expansion dynamics of the single-minimum phase of a binary spin-orbit coupled Bose-Einstein condensate, after releasing from an external
Master's Thesis: Excitation Spectrum of a Weakly Interacting Spin-Orbit Coupled Bose-Einstein Condensate
A weakly interacting, spin-orbit coupled, two-component, ultracold Bose gas bound to a Bravais lattice is studied. Motivated by recent experimental advances in the field of synthetically spin-orbit
Super Giant Quantum Vortex in a Pion Bose-Einstein Condensate
Under the circumstance of parallel rotation and magnetic field that are expected in off-central heavy ion collisions, charged pions may form a Bose-Einstein condensate because of the lift of the
Dynamical excitations in low-dimensional condensates: sound, vortices and quenched dynamics
The dynamics of systems out of equilibrium, such as the phase transition process, are very rich, and related to largely scalable problems, from very small ultracold gases to large expanding galaxies.
Emptiness formation in polytropic quantum liquids
We study large deviations in interacting quantum liquids with the polytropic equation of state P(ρ) ∼ ρ γ , where ρ is density and P is pressure. By solving hydrodynamic equations in imaginary time
A new apparatus to simulate fundamental interactions with ultracold atoms
In this thesis I present the construction of a new apparatus aimed at studying two-component Bose-Einstein condensates (BECs) in the presence of a Rabi coupling, where the two components correspond
