Abstract

We consider the evolution of $N$ bosons, where $N$ is large, with two-body interactions of the form $N^{3\beta}v(N^{\beta}\mathbf{\cdot})$, $0\leq\beta\leq 1$. The parameter $\beta$ measures the strength of interactions. We compare the exact evolution with an approximation which considers the evolution of a mean field coupled with an appropriate description of pair excitations, see [25, 26]. For $0\leq \beta < 1/2$, we derive an error bound of the form $p(t)/N^\alpha$, where $\alpha>0$ and $p(t)$ is a polynomial, which implies a specific rate of convergence as $N\rightarrow\infty$.
