Niels Benedikter

Research Interests

I'm a PostDoc working in Mathematical Physics, specialized on Many-Body Quantum Systems and Condensed Matter.

I work on the mathematically rigorous derivation of effective equations for interacting many-body systems. Examples are the Gross-Pitaevskii and Bogoliubov theories of Bose-Einstein condensates, Hartree-Fock theory for fermionic many-body systems and spin wave theory for the ferromagnetic Heisenberg model.

Vienna is well connected to most of Europe by rail. Trains include ICEs, Railjets and a number of night trains. I particularly recommend to travel in a sleeper compartment on an ÖBB Nightjet to arrive to Vienna comfortably and with a small carbon footprint. The night train connections include direct hotel trains to Hamburg, Zurich, Düsseldorf, Rome, Venice, Milan, Moscow, Nice, Bregenz, Livorno, Warschau, Krakau and Košice. The night train to Berlin is unfortunately being cancelled in December 2017.

If you decide to fly to Vienna: of course CO2-compensation is not a sustainable solution, but in view of your climate sins, please do something good to our planet. For example, get your CO2-compensation (on atmosfair or myclimate) and give another 50% of the compensation cost to Médecins Sans Frontières. In Vienna, go to the station "Heiligenstadt" and take the IST shuttle bus from there.
