This chapter discusses the physics of ultracold gases in ‘artificial’ magnetic fields. The analogy between electronic systems in the presence of external magnetic fields and ultracold gases in rotating traps leads to the familiar concepts of Landau Levels, the integer Hall effect, the fractional quantum Hall effect, and laughing states for neutral particles. The second part analyses the possibility of simulating Abelian and non Abelian Lattice Gauge theories with ultracold gases. Finally, the state-of-the-art in generating artificial magnetic fields for ultracold gases is reviewed.

Keywords:   Landau levels, integer Hall effect, quantum Hall effect, Dirac points, Abelian Lattice Gauge, lattice gauge fields, topological states, anions
