4 A Catalogue of Models

In this chapter, we will attempt to categorise the very many analogue models researchers have investigated. Perhaps the most basic subdivision is into classical models and quantum models, but even then many other levels of refinement are possible. Consider for instance the following list:

We will now provide a few words on each of these topics.


 4.1 Classical models
  4.1.1 Classical sound
  4.1.2 Shallow water waves (gravity waves)
  4.1.3 Classical refractive index
  4.1.4 Normal mode meta-models
 4.2 Quantum models
  4.2.1 Bose-Einstein condensates
  4.2.2 BEC models in the eikonal approximation
  4.2.3 The Heliocentric universe
  4.2.4 Slow light
 4.3 Going further
