The established cosmological theory which describes the history of the Universe since shortly after the “Big Bang” until today is remarkably successful. Thanks to the increasing precision of… Expand

Negative absolute temperatures (NAT) are an exotic thermodynamical consequence of quantum physics which has been known since the 1950's (having been achieved in the lab on a number of occasions).… Expand

It is shown that Boltzmann (negative) temperature allows the description of phase transitions occurring at high energy densities, at variance with Gibbs temperature, to be applied to nonlinear lattice models standardly employed to describe the propagation of light in arrays of coupled wave guides and the dynamics of ultracold gases trapped in optical lattices.Expand
