# Theory of Bose-Einstein condensation in trapped gases

@article{Dalfovo1999TheoryOB, title={Theory of Bose-Einstein condensation in trapped gases}, author={Franco Dalfovo and Stefano Giorgini and L.P.Pitaevskii and S.Stringari}, journal={Reviews of Modern Physics}, year={1999}, volume={71}, pages={463-512} }

The phenomenon of Bose-Einstein condensation of dilute gases in traps is reviewed from a theoretical perspective. Mean-field theory provides a framework to understand the main features of the condensation and the role of interactions between particles. Various properties of these systems are discussed, including the density profiles and the energy of the ground-state configurations, the collective oscillations and the dynamics of the expansion, the condensate fraction and the thermodynamic…
