O ct 2 00 0 SUPERFLUID 3 He : A LABORATORY MODEL SYSTEM FOR QUANTUM FIELD THEORY ∗

The early Universe is believed to have undergone a sequence of rapid phase transitions. Defect formation in these transitions has been suggested as one possible source for the anisotropy in the cosmic background radiation and the large-scale structure in the distribution of visible mass. So far controlled laboratory experiments have not been performed on… CONTINUE READING
