## Derivation of the Gross-Pitaevskii equation

##### Abstract:

In this talk, I am going to discuss some recent results concerning the derivation, from many body quantum mechanics, of a cubic nonlinear Schroedinger equation, known as the Gross-Pitaevskii equation, for the dynamics of Bose-Einstein condensation. This is a joint work with L. Erdos and H.-T. Yau.
