Volume Visualization of Bose-Einstein Condensates



Peter M. Ketcham, D L. Feder, Charles W. Clark, Steven G. Satterfield, Terence J. Griffin, William L. George, Barry I. Schneider, W P. Reinhardt


Theoretical aspects of Bose-Einstein condensates are investigated by conducting computer simulations of their behavior. Scientific visualization techniques are employed in order to examine the large amount of data generated by simulation. Visualization of this simulated data demonstrates theoretical predictions, influences the reaearch process, accelerates scientific understanding, and stimulates further investigation.
