Life and work[edit]

Seiringer studied physics at the University of Vienna, where in 1999 he acquired his diploma and in 2000 with Jakob Yngvason as thesis advisor attained a doctorate. In 2005 he attained his habilitation qualification at the University of Vienna. With a Schrödinger scholarship, he went in 2001 to Princeton University. There he became in 2003 assistant professor. Starting from 2010 he is an associate professor at McGill University. In addition he is extraordinarius professor at the University of Vienna. Seiringer made substantial progress in the mathematical theory of quantum gases and particularly Bose–Einstein condensate (BEC). He partly proved the existence of BEC for interacting boson gases in the Gross–Pitaevskii limit[1] in collaboration with Elliott Lieb. They proved also superfluidity in this limit and derived the Gross–Pitaevskii equation in the special case of BEC in rotating containers. In 2009 Seiringer received the Henri Poincaré Prize.
