# Fluctuations around Hartree states in the mean-field regime

@article{Lewin2013FluctuationsAH, title={Fluctuations around Hartree states in the mean-field regime}, author={Mathieu Lewin and Phan Th{\`a}nh Nam and Benjamin Schlein}, journal={American Journal of Mathematics}, year={2013}, volume={137}, pages={1613 - 1650} }

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 state are generated by an effective quadratic Hamiltonian in Fock space, which is derived from Bogoliubov's approximation. We use a direct method in the $N$-particle space, which is different from the one based on coherent states in Fock space.
