In this letter, we show that it is possible to unravel both the physical origin of the Landau’s consistence criterion and the specific and subtle meaning of interpenetration of the “two fluids” if one takes into account that in the hydrodynamic regime one needs a coarse-graining in time to bring the system into local equilibrium. That is, the fuzziness in time is relevant for the phenomenological Landau’s consistency criterion and the meaning of interpenetration. Note also that we are not… Expand

Cartography of the space of theories: An interpretational chart for fields that are both (dark) matter and spacetime
This paper pushes back against the Democritean-Newtonian tradition of assuming a strict conceptual dichotomy between spacetime and matter. Our approach proceeds via the more narrow distinctionExpand


Laszlo Tisza and the two-fluid model of superfluidity
Abstract The “two-fluid model” of superfluidity was first introduced by Laszlo Tisza in 1938. On that year, Tisza published the principles of his model as a brief note in Nature and two articles inExpand
The stability of the Couette flow of helium II
The stability of Couette flow in HeII is considered by an analysis of the HVBK equations. These equations are based on the Landau two-fluid model of HeII and include mutual friction between theExpand
General theory unifying and extending the Landau-Khalatnikov, Ginzburg-Pitaevskii, and Hills-Roberts theories of superfluid /sup 4/He
A general phenomenological theory of superfluid /sup 4/He is presented which takes account of the effects of healing and relaxation. The Landau-Khalatnikov theory and the Hills-Roberts theory areExpand
Coarse-graining scale and effectiveness of hydrodynamic modeling
Some basic questions about the hydrodynamical approach to relativistic heavy-ion collisions are discussed aiming to clarify how far we can go with such an approach to extract useful information onExpand
Stability and Causality in relativistic dissipative hydrodynamics
The stability and causality of the Landau–Lifshitz theory and the Israel–Stewart-type causal dissipative hydrodynamics are discussed. We show that the problems of acausality and instability areExpand

Chapter 1 Intrinsic Critical Velocities in Superfluid Helium
Publisher Summary This chapter discusses intrinsic critical velocities in superfluid helium. The main thesis is that stable superflow is a nonequilibrium phenomenon, and must therefore be discussedExpand
Phonon-roton modes in liquid 4He coincide with Bose-Einstein condensation
We present neutron scattering measurements of the phonon-roton (P-R) and layer modes of liquid 4He confined in MCM-41 under pressure up to 38 bar. The data shows unambiguously that the P-R modeExpand
The Discovery of Superfluidity
Two of the greatest physics discoveries in the first half of the 20th century were superconductivity and superfluidity. Superconductivity involves the frictionless conduction of electricity in wires,Expand
