dc.description.abstractThe dynamics of a quantum system with a large number $N$ of identical bosonic particles interacting by means of weak two-body potentials can be simplified by using mean-field equations in which all interactions to any one body have been replaced with an average or effective interaction in the mean-field limit $N \rightarrow \infty$. In order to show these mean-field equations are accurate, one needs to show convergence of the quantum $N$-body dynamics to these equations in the mean-field limit. Previous results on convergence in the mean field limit have been derived for certain initial conditions in the case of one species of bosonic particles, but no results have yet been shown for multi-species. In this thesis, we look at a quantum bosonic system with two species of particles. For this system, we derive a formula for the rate of convergence in the mean-field limit in the case of an initial coherent state, and we also show convergence in the mean-field limit for the case of an initial factorized state. The analysis for two species can then be extended to multiple species.en_US
