Transition to superfluidity in liquid 4He

Risultato della ricerca: Chapter

Abstract

In this work the transition from normal liquid helium I to superfluid liquid helium II, controlled by temperature and pressure, is studied in the simplified assumption of absence of viscosity. A macroscopic thermodynamical model is presented, which chooses as new independent fields the heat flux q and a phase field function f. For the heat flux a modification of Cattaneo equation is written, while for the function f a time dependent Ginzburg-Landau equation is proposed.
