Reduction and Emergence in Bose-Einstein Condensates

Foundations of Physics 41 (6):1007-1030 (2011)

Abstract

A closer look at some proposed Gedanken-experiments on BECs promises to shed light on several aspects of reduction and emergence in physics. These include the relations between classical descriptions and different quantum treatments of macroscopic systems, and the emergence of new properties and even new objects as a result of spontaneous symmetry breaking
