SECOND ORDER CORRECTIONS TO MEAN FIELD EVOLUTION FOR WEAKLY INTERACTING BOSONS, I

By M. Grillakis, M. Machedon and D. Margetis

Abstract

Inspired by the works of Rodnianski and Schlein [31] and Wu [34, 35], we derive a new nonlinear Schrödinger equation that describes a second-order correction to the usual tensor product (mean-field) approximation for the Hamiltonian evolution of a many-particle system in Bose-Einstein condensation. We show that our new equation, if it has solutions with appropriate smoothness and decay properties, implies a new Fock space estimate. We also show that for an interaction potential v(x) = ǫχ(x)|x | −1, where ǫ is sufficiently small and χ ∈ C ∞ 0, our program can be easily implemented locally in time. We leave global in time issues, more singular potentials and sophisticated estimates for a subsequent part (part II) of this paper
