**A Primer on Quantum Fluids**

by Carlo F. Barenghi, Nick G. Parker

**Publisher**: Springer 2016**ISBN/ASIN**: 3319424742**ISBN-13**: 9783319424743**Number of pages**: 132

**Description**:

This book introduces the theoretical description and properties of quantum fluids. The focus is on gaseous atomic Bose-Einstein condensates and, to a minor extent, superfluid helium, but the underlying concepts are relevant to other forms of quantum fluids such as polariton and photonic condensates. The book is pitched at the level of advanced undergraduates and early postgraduate students.
