Quantum Turbulence and Global variables thermodynamic of a trapped

In this seminar we shall describe the observation of superfluid turbulence
in an atomic trapped sample of Rb. Description of excitation, final side
effect, and hydrodynamic properties will be presented. Simulations that
justify the experimental observations will be presented.  In a second part
of the seminar, the possibility to describe the thermodynamics of a trapped
superfluid using global ( in instead of local) variables will be discussed.
Measurement of heat capacity, compressibility and the evidences of
complementarities between pressure and volume will be discussed.
