Dr Dimitri Gangardt


Currently I am working in the exciting field of Cold Atoms. These are now probably the most controllable systems to study collective behaviour of quantum particles. Nonequilibrium situations arising in these quantum systems is the central topic of my research. The typical experiment consists of letting particles fall through the Bose-Einstein condensate and study the dynamics of created excitations. This studies requires combination of methods of quantum kinetics, quantum field theory and mathematical physics. More details »


I am teaching a 3rd year couse on Chaos and Dynamical Systems, where I use methods of Hamiltonian and Lagrangian mechanics to show how a deterministic motion can become chaotic, i.e. unstable with respect to small change in initial conditions. This year I have taught a 10 hours course on Bose-Einstein condensation and superfluidity in the framework of Midlands Physics Alliance Graduate School.
