Title: Dynamics of a Quantum Phase Transition in a Ferromagnetic Bose-Einstein Condensate

Abstract

We discuss dynamics of a slow quantum phase transition in a spin-1 Bose-Einstein condensate. We analytically determine the scaling properties of the system magnetization and verify them with numerical simulations in a one dimensional model.
