Analysis of a rotating two-component Bose-Einstein condensate

20 November 2017

In this joint work with Amandine Aftalion we study the minimisers of an energy functional in two-dimensions describing a rotating two-component condensate. This involves in particular separating a line-energy term and a vortex term which have different orders of magnitude, and requires new estimates for functionals of the Cahn-Hilliard (or Modica-Mortola) type.
