Abstract

An operator-algebraic approach to analyze the yrast spectrum of weakly interacting bosons is proposed. The basic idea is to exploit the macroscopic occupation of a particular mode to rewrite the second-quantized interaction Hamiltonian under the restriction of the total particle-number conservation and the angular-momentum conservation. Analytically, it is shown that the lowest-lying excitation spectrum from the yrast line is given by 27gn3(n3-1)/34.
