Kinetic limit for the weakly nonlinear Schroedinger equation

Herbert Spohn
Technische Universtitat München

The derivation of the kinetic equation for weakly nonlinear wave equations is a longstanding and still unsolved problem. Together with Jani Lukkarinen we make progress in proving the kinetic limit for equilibrium time correlations. The full proof can be found in arXiv:0901.3678. A general overview is provided in arXiv:0807.5072.
