The Spirit Level by Seamus Heaney - Seamus Heaney’s poem “Postscript” comes from a book of poems The Spirit Level that Heaney published in 1996. In these poems, Heaney tries to entice the reader to be open to marvelous moments of vision in small, everyday moments. Throughout the “Postscript” the speaker is describing an experience with a natural landscape in order to illustrate how experiences can evoke feelings that overwhelm us and leave us speechless because of their transcendent beauty.

However, it was not until 1995 that simple BEC (Bose-Einstein condensation) was observed in a low-density Bosonic gas. This recent experimental breakthrough has led to renewed theoretical interest in BEC. The focus of my research is to more accurately determine basic properties of homogeneous Bose gases. In particular nonuniversal effects of the energy density and condensate fraction will be explored....   [tags: Albert Einstein Gases Science Essays] 3708 words
