Bose-Einstein condensates, superfluids, and astrophysics

In this talk I will introduce the concepts of Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC) and superfluids. These have for many years been the subjects of much research in condensed matter physics since they provide the basis for superconductivity and other exotic properties, and models can be readily realised and tested to high precision in the labs. But BEC and superfluidity also have applications in astrophysics and cosmology, which I will show examples of.
