Hi all,

Apologies for the lateness of this week's mailing - caused by the birth of
Juliette Davis on Monday!

I have now begun a mailing list for this service - to subscribe send a
message to

majordomo_at_acqao.org

and in the body of the message have the command:

subscribe matts_arxiv

Please let your friends know that this exists - it would be nice to get a
big list of subscribers as some publicity for the Centre of Excellence.
I will be begining a webpage with an archive of mailings once my life gets
closer to being back to normal!

Cheers,

Title: Ferromagnetic phase transition in spinor Bose gases

\\
The achievement in cooling alkali atomic gases, such as $^{87}$Rb, $^{23}$Na
and $^{7}$Li, to quantum degeneracy opens up a way to study magnetism in spinor
bosons, because these constituent atoms usually have a hyperfine spin degree of
ferromagnetic phase transition in spinor atomic Bose gases from a theoretical
perspective. After a brief discussion on various possible origins of the
ferromagnetic interaction, the phase diagram of the ferromagnetically coupled
spinor bosons is investigated. It is found that the ferromagnetic transition
occurs always above Bose-Einstein condensation and the Bose condensate is fully
polarized. The low-lying collective excitations of the spinor condensate,
including spin and density modes, are discussed. The spectrum of the density
mode is of the Bogliubov form and the spin wave spectrum has a $k^2$-formed
dispersion relation at long wavelengths. The spin-wave stiffness coefficient
contains contribut

Title: Oscillations of Bose condensates in a one-dimensional optical
superlattice

Journal-ref: PHYSICAL REVIEW A 72, 065601 (2005)
\\
Oscillations of atomic Bose-Einstein condensates in a 1D optical lattice with
a two-point basis is investigated. In the low-frequency regime, four branches
of modes are resolved, that correspond to the transverse in-phase and
out-of-phase breathing modes, and the longitudinal acoustic and optical phonon
modes of the condensates. Dispersions of these modes depend intimately on the
values of two intersite Josephson tunneling strengths, $J_1$ and $J_2$, and the
on-site repulsion $U$ between the atoms. Observation of these mode dispersions
is thus a direct way to access them.

Title: Can quantum computing solve classically unsolvable problems?
Authors: Andrew Hodges
\\
T. D. Kieu has claimed that a quantum computing procedure can solve a
classically unsolvable problem. Recent work of W. D. Smith has shown that
Kieu's central mathematical claim cannot be sustained. Here, a more general
critique is given of Kieu's proposal and some suggestions are made regarding
the Church-Turing thesis.

Title: Ground state overlap, quantum phase transitions and the orthogonality
catastrophe
Authors: Paolo Zanardi and Nikola Paunkovi\'c
\\
We present a characterization of quantum phase transitions in terms of the
the overlap function between two ground states obtained for two different
values of external parameters. On the examples of the Dicke and XY models, we
show that the regions of criticality of a system are marked by the extremal
points of the overlap and functions closely related to it. Further, we discuss
the connections of this approach and with the Anderson orthogonality
catastrophe as well as with the dynamical study of the Loschmidt echo for
critical systems.

Title: Temperature effects on mixed state geometric phase
Authors: A. T. Rezakhani and P. Zanardi
\\
Geometric phase of an open quantum system in interaction with a thermal
environment is studied. To gain insight on how thermal effects can change
geometric phase we study some simple models. The system is considered to be a
simple spin-half particle which is interacting with a bath. These different
models generally show that GP can vary even when the system is weakly coupled
to environment. As the final example we consider the system under an
adiabatically time varying magnetic field which is weakly coupled to thermal
environment. An important feature of this model is that it reveals existence of
a temperature scale in which adiabaticity condition is preserved. This
temperature is exactly the one in which geometric phase vanishes.

Title: Entropy: An inherent, nonstatistical property of any system in any state
Authors: Elias P. Gyftopoulos
\\
Entropy is the distinguishing and most important concept of our efforts to
understand and regularize our observations of a very large class of natural
phenomena, and yet, it is one of the most contentious concepts of physics. In
reference to quantum theory, and the other quantum mechanical without
probabilities of statistical mechanics. In the first, we show that entropy is
an inherent property of any system in any state, and that its analytical
expression must conform to eight criteria. In the second, we recognize that
quantum thermodynamics: (i) admits quantum probabilities described either by
wave functions or by nonstatistical density operators; and (ii) requires a
nonlinear equation of motion that is delimited by but more general than the
Schroedinger equation, and that accounts for both reversible and irreversible
evolutions of the state of the system in time. Both the more general quantum
probabilities, and the equation of motion have been defined, and the three laws
of thermodynamics are shown to be theorems of this equation.

Title: Experimental Constraints of Using Slow-Light in Sodium Vapor for
Light-Drag Enhanced Relative Rotation Sensing
Authors: Renu Tripathi, G.S. Pati, M. Messall, K. Salit and M.S. Shahriar
\\
We report on experimental observation of electromagnetically induced
transparency and slow-light (vg ~ c/607) in atomic sodium vapor, as a potential
medium for a recently proposed experiment on slow-light enhanced relative
rotation sensing [11]. We have performed an interferometric measurement of the
index variation associated with a two-photon resonance to estimate the
dispersion characteristics of the medium that is relevant to the slow-light
based rotation sensing scheme. We also show that the presence of
counter-propagating pump beams in an optical Sagnac loop produces a backward
optical phase conjugation beam that can generate spurious signals, which may
complicate the measurement of small rotations in the slow-light enhanced
gyroscope. We identify techniques for overcoming this constraint.

Title: Controllable Anomalous Dispersion and Group Index Nulling via
Bi-Frequency Raman Gain in Rb Vapor for application to Ultraprecision
Rotation Sensing
Authors: G.S. Pati, Renu Tripathi, M. Messall, K. Salit and M.S. Shahriar
\\
We have recently proposed [9], the use of fast-light media to obtain
ultrahigh precision rotation sensing capabilities. The scheme relies on
producing a critically anomalous dispersion, in a suitable dispersive medium,
which is introduced in the arms of a Sagnac interferometer. We present here an
experimental investigation of the anomalous dispersion properties of
bi-frequency Raman gain in rubidium vapor, with the goal of using this medium
for producing the critically anomalous dispersion condition. A heterodyne phase
measurement technique is used to measure accurately the index variation
associated with the dispersion. The slope of the negative linear dispersion (or
group index) is experimentally varied by more than two orders of magnitude
while changing the frequency separation between pump fields, responsible for
producing gain. Using this result, we have identified the experimental
parameters for achieving a null value of the group index, corresponding to the
critically anomalous dispersion condition necessary for enhanced rotational
sensitivity.

Title: Theory of matter wave beam splitters in gravito-inertial and trapping
potentials
Authors: Charles Antoine, Christian J. Borde
Subj-class: Other
\\
We present a strong field theory of matter wave splitting in the presence of
various gravitational, inertial and trapping potentials. The effect of these
potentials on the resonance condition (between the splitting potential and the
considered effective two-level system) and on the atomic Borrmann effect is
investigated in detail. The dispersive structuring of an incident atomic wave
packet - due to such generalized beam splitters - is studied and modeled, and
several important dynamical features of the solutions are detailed (generalized
Rabi oscillations, velocity selection, anomalous dispersion, generalized
Borrmann effect and anomalous gravitational bending). Finally, we show how to
express this triple interaction "matter - splitting potential -
gravito-inertial and trapping potentials" as an equivalent instantaneous
interaction which turns out to be a very efficient tool for the modeling of
atom interferometers.

Title: Trapped Fermions across a Feshbach resonance with population imbalance
Authors: W. Yi and L.-M. Duan
Subj-class: Other
\\
We investigate the phase separation of resonantly interacting fermions in a
trap with imbalanced spin populations, both at zero and at finite temperatures.
We directly minimize the thermodynamical potential under the local density
approximation instead of using the gap equation, as the latter may give
unstable solutions. On the BEC side of the resonance, one may cross three
different phases from the trap center to the edge; while on the BCS side or at
resonance, typically only two phases show up. We compare our results with the
recent experiment, and the agreement is remarkable.

Ultracold alkali atoms provide experimentally accessible model systems for
probing quantum states that manifest themselves at the macroscopic scale.
Recent experimental realizations of superfluidity in dilute gases of ultracold
fermionic (half-integer spin) atoms offer exciting opportunities to directly
test theoretical models of related many-body fermion systems that are
inaccessible to experimental manipulation, such as neutron stars and
quark-gluon plasmas. However, the microscopic interactions between fermions are
potentially quite complex, and experiments in ultracold gases to date cannot
clearly distinguish between the qualitatively different microscopic models that
have been proposed. Here, we theoretically demonstrate that optical
measurements of electron spin noise -- the intrinsic, random fluctuations of
spin -- can probe the entangled quantum states of ultracold fermionic atomic
gases and unambiguously reveal the detailed nature of the interatomic
interactions. We show that different models predict different sets of
resonances in the noise spectrum, and once the correct effective interatomic
interaction model is identified, the line-shapes of the spin noise can be used
to constrain this model. Further, experimental measurements of spin noise in
classical (Boltzmann) alkali vapors are used to estimate the expected signal
magnitudes for spin noise measurements in ultracold atom systems and to show
that these measurements are feasible.

Title: Topological Phase Transition Theory of Strongly Correlated Many Body
System
Authors: Tieyan Si
Subj-class: Statistical Mechanics; Strongly Correlated Electrons
\\
We developed a systematic topological phase transition theory and proposed
quantum phase transition of higher order. This topological phase transition
theory shows that, when the system jumps from p th order phase transition to
(p+1)th or (p-1)th order phase transition, there is a substantial change of the
topology of the configuration space. We found an universal equation of
coexistence curve in phase diagram, this equation unified the previous
different special coexistence equations for different order phase transition.
From this coexistence curve equation, one can arrive the phase diagram of any
order phase transition, it holds both for classical and quantum phase
transition. We also generalized Landau theory of phase transition, and proposed
a new definition of the order of phase transition. As an application, we take
the Bose-Hubbard model as an example to demonstrate how to use this method to
study the quantum phase transition. We depict the first order phase diagram, it
is in agreement with recent progress. Since the higher-order quantum phase
transition in condensed matter physics is still virgin, we proposed the
equation of the second order and higher-order phase diagram of quantum phase
transition in optical lattice and expected an experimental verify. Further
more, the equation of the phase diagram for a multicomponent Bose-Einstein
condensate in optical lattice is also studied. We also proposed that the order
of a quantum phase transition is determined by the subgroup chain of the
system.

We study many-body tunneling of a small Bose-Einstein condensate in a

the trapping potential leads to an analog of photon-assisted tunneling, with
distinct signatures of the interparticle interaction visible in the amount of
particles transferred from one well to the other. In particular, under
experimentally accessible conditions there exist well-developed half-integer
Shapiro-like resonances.

We demonstrate that the transition from a superfluid to a Mott insulator in

involves adiabatic following of Floquet states, and can be tested
experimentally with Bose-Einstein condensates in periodically driven optical
lattices. Its extension from small to very large systems yields nontrivial
information on the condensate dynamics.

Title: Imaging of critical correlations in optical lattices and atomic traps
Authors: Qian Niu, Iacopo Carusotto, and A. B. Kuklov
Comments: 7 revtex pages, no figures
Subj-class: Other
\\
We suggest real space determination of diverging space-time correlations upon
approaching a continuous phase transition within the paradigm of finite size
scaling. The method relies on interference of an atomic cloud released from the
optical lattice (or from the trap) with some reference Bose-Einstein
condensate. As opposed to the standard absorptive imaging technique, the
proposed one allows imaging of atomic many body {\it wavefunction} in the
lattice (or in the trap) by projecting it on coherent states of the reference
cloud. The advantage of this method is that the correlation properties of the
interference pattern are robust with respect to expansion and are not,
practically, affected by underlying lattice. The non-destructive scheme allows,
in principle, measuring the space-time correlators of arbitrary order.

Title: Notes on phase space quantization
Authors: J. Kiukas, P. Lahti, K. Ylinen
Comments: 21 pages, submitted to Journal of Mathematical Physics
\\
We consider questions related to a quantization scheme in which a classical
variable f:\Omega\to R on a phase space \Omega is associated with a
semispectral measure E^f, such that the moment operators of E^f are required to
be of the form \Gamma(f^k), with \Gamma a suitable mapping from the set of
classical variables to the set of (not necessarily bounded) operators in some
Hilbert space. In particular, we investigate the situation where the map \Gamma
is implemented by the operator integral with respect to some fixed positive
operator measure. The phase space \Omega is first taken to be an abstract
measurable space, then a locally compact unimodular group, and finally R^2,
where we determine explicitly the relevant operators \Gamma(f^k) for certain
variables f, in the case where the quantization map \Gamma is implemented by a
translation covariant positive operator measure. In addition, we consider the
question under what conditions a positive operator measure is projection
valued.

atom mixture
Authors: Yue Yu and S. T. Chui

We show that the electron-like and photon-like excitations may exist in a
three-dimensional Bose-Fermi Hubbard model describing ultracold Bose-Fermi atom
mixtures in optical lattices. In a Mott insulating phase of the Bose atoms,
these excitations are stabilized by an induced repulsive interaction between
'electrons' if the Fermi atoms are nearly half filling. We suggest to create
'external electric field' so that the electron-like excitation can be observed
by measuring the linear density-density response of the 'electron' gas to the
'external field' in a time-of-flight experiment of the mixture. The Fermi
surface of the 'electron' gas may also be expected to be observed in the
time-of-flight.

\\
Population transfer between two identical, communicating defects in a
one-dimensional tight-binding lattice can be systematically controlled by
external time-periodic forcing. Employing a force with slowly changing
amplitude, the time it takes to transfer a particle from one defect to the
other can be altered over several orders of magnitude. An analytical expression
is derived which shows how the forcing effectively changes the energy splitting
between the defect states, and numerical model calculations illustrate the
possibility of coherent control of the transfer.

This thesis presents experiments probing physics in the crossover between
Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC) and BCS superconductivity using an ultracold
gas of atomic fermions. Scattering resonances in these ultracold gases (known
as Feshbach resonances) provide the unique ability to tune the fermion-fermion
interactions. The work presented here pioneered the use of fermionic Feshbach
resonances as a highly controllable and tunable system ideal for studying the
cusp of the BCS-BEC crossover problem. Here pairs of fermionic atoms have some
properties of diatomic molecules and some properties of Cooper pairs. I present
studies of a normal Fermi gas at a Feshbach resonance and the work required to
cool the gas to temperatures where superfluidity in the crossover is predicted.
These studies culminated in our observation of a phase transition at the cusp
of the BCS-BEC crossover through condensation of fermionic atom pairs. I also
discuss subsequent work that confirmed the crossover nature of the pairs in
these condensates.

Title: Two-Mode Theory of BEC Interferometry
Authors: B J Dalton
\\
A theory of BEC interferometry in an unsymmetrical double-well trap has been
developed for small boson numbers, based on the two-mode approximation. The
bosons are initially in the lowest mode of a single well trap, which is split
into a double well and then recombined. Possible fragmentations into separate
BEC states in each well during the splitting/recombination process are allowed
for. The BEC is treated as a giant spin system, the fragmented states are
eigenstates of S^2 and Sz. Self-consistent sets of equations for the amplitudes
of the fragmented states and for the two single boson mode functions are
obtained. The latter are coupled Gross-Pitaevskii equations. Interferometric
effects may be measured via boson numbers in the first excited mode

We introduce a scheme for creating continuous variable entanglement between

from a BEC via a Raman transition. We model the full multimode dynamics of the
atom laser beam and the squeezed optical field, and show that with appropriate
two-photon detuning and two-photon Rabi frequency, the transmitted light is
entangled in amplitude and phase with the outcoupled atom laser beam. The
degree of entanglement is controllable via changes in the two-photon Rabi
frequency of the outcoupling process.
