Author Biography

Lev Pitaevskii, Senior Researcher, University of Trento,Sandro Stringari, Professor of Theoretical Physics, University of Trento

Sandro Stringari is a full professor at the University of Trento and member of the CNR Trento research center on Bose-Einstein Condensation. After his studies at the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa he started his scientific career in the field of nuclear physics, quantum clusters and quantum fluids. He is an expert in the theory of ultracold atomic gases where he made important contributions on their dynamic and superfluid behavior. He worked, as invited scientist, at the Department of Theoretical Physics in Oxford and at the Institut de Physique Nucleaire in Orsay . In the year 2004/05 he held the European Chair at the College de France in Paris. Sandro Stringari has been the organizer of several conferences and schools in different domains of physics. He is corresponding member of the Italian Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei.

Lev P. Pitaevskii is a researcher at the CNR Trento research center on Bose-Einstein Condensation and at the Kapitza Institute for Physical Problems in Moscow. He was educated at Saratov University (Russia) and worked at the Institute for Physical Problems and also at Technion (Haifa, Israel). He has worked at the University of Trento since 1998. His main expertise is in the theory of superfluidity, Bose-Einsten condensation, Van der Waals forces and plasma physics. He is co-author of the books Quantum Electrodynamics, Statistical Physics, Part II (Condensed Matter Theory) and Physical Kinetics, which are part of the Landau-Lifshitz Course of Theoretical Physics. He is a full Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
