FINESS 2009

In June 2007, a workshop on Non-equilibrium behaviour in superfluid gases at finite temperature was held in Sandbjerg, Denmark. At its conclusion it was decided to hold another workshop in approximately two years time, on such topics as kinetic equations, classical field theory, Kadanoff-Baym equations, projected Gross-Pitaevskii equations, the truncated Wigner approximation, Positive P, 2PI, etc., in particular as applied to cold, trapped atomic and molecular gases, but also on solid state systems that can be treated in a formally similar way. This workshop was held at Van Mildert College, in Durham, England from 14th–17th September 2009.

  1. Blair Blakie (University of Otago, New Zealand)
