Numerical studies of ultracold atomic gases
Master of Science
The experimental success in ultra-cold atomic gases, both bosonic and fermionic have boosted the theoretical studies, and especially the a lot of numerical techniques have been developed and used to describe them. In this thesis, we introduce two numerical experiments in our group on ultra-cold atomic gases. The first concerns the scalar dipolar condensate. We have developed and implemented a Split-Step Fourier scheme in imaginary time, which enable us to seek the ground state of the dipolar condensate. The second part is focused on our ongoing efforts to investigate the trapped spin polarized Fermi gas using self-consistent Bogoliubov-de Gennes (BdG) calculation.
