We obtain a complete solution for the mean-field dynamics of the BCS paired state with a large, but finite number of Cooper pairs in the nonadiabatic regime. We show that the problem reduces to a classical integrable Hamiltonian system and derive a complete set of its integrals of motion. The condensate exhibits irregular multifrequency oscillations ergodically exploring the part of the phase space allowed by the conservation laws. In the thermodynamic limit, however, the system can asymptotically reach a steady state. © 2005 The American Physical Society.
