@article{Lidsey2004CosmicDO, title={Cosmic dynamics of Bose–Einstein condensates}, author={James E. Lidsey}, journal={Classical and Quantum Gravity}, year={2004}, volume={21}, pages={777-785} }

A dynamical correspondence is established between positively curved, isotropic, perfect fluid cosmologies and quasi-two-dimensional, harmonically trapped Bose–Einstein condensates by mapping the equations of motion for both systems onto the one-dimensional Ermakov system. Parameters that characterize the physical properties of the condensate wavepacket, such as its width, momentum and energy, may be identified with the scale factor, Hubble expansion parameter and energy density of the universe…

In some interesting work of James Lidsey, the dynamics of Friedmann–Lemaitre–Robertson–Walker (FLRW) cosmology with positive curvature and a perfect fluid matter source is shown to be modeled in…

Observer dependence for the phonon content of the sound field living on the effective curved space-time background of a Bose-Einstein condensate

Even if the discovery of the Higgs boson should be confirmed, the theoretical physics building is far from being complete. Essential everyday experience like dissipation and irreversibility are not…

Vortex analogue for the equatorial geometry of the Kerr black hole

- Physics

The spacetime geometry on the equatorial slice through a Kerr black hole is formally equivalent to the geometry felt by phonons entrained in a rotating fluid vortex. We analyse this example of…
