Abstract

We consider a system of N bosons interacting through a singular two-body potential scaling with N and having the form N3β1V(Nβx)N^{3\beta −1}V(N^{\beta }x), for an arbitrary parameter β(0,1)\beta \in (0,1). We provide a norm-approximation for the many-body evolution of initial data exhibiting Bose–Einstein condensation in terms of a cubic nonlinear Schrödinger equation for the condensate wave function and of a unitary Fock space evolution with a generator quadratic in creation and annihilation operators for the fluctuations.
