Superfluidity and superconductivity are traditionally understood in terms of an adiabatic continuation from the Bose-gas limit. Here we demonstrate that at least in a 2+ 1D Bose system, superfluidity can arise in a strict quantum field-theoretic setting. Taking the theory of quantum elasticity (describing phonons) as a literal quantum field theory with a… CONTINUE READING
