Using the formalism of quantum mechanics developed in the Department of Physics, a detailed study of the crucial ground-state properties of superfluid liquid helium four is being carried out. This study involves a comparison between theoretical consequences and experimental data of momentum distribution, ground-state wave function, two-particle potential, excitation spectrum, effective mass etc.
