Many-Body Physics with Ultracold Gases: Lecture Notes of the Les Houches Summer School: Volume 94, July 2010

Christophe Salomon, Georgy V. Shlyapnikov, and Leticia F. Cugliandolo


This book gathers the lecture notes of courses given at the 2010 summer school in theoretical physics in Les Houches, France, Session XCIV. This book illustrates how the field of quantum gases has flourished at the interface between atomic physics and quantum optics, condensed matter physics, nuclear and high-energy physics, non-linear physics, and quantum information. The physics of correlated atoms in optical lattices is covered from both theoretical and experimental perspectives, including the Bose and Fermi Hubbard models, and the description of the Mott transition. Few-body physics with c ... More

Keywords: quantum gases, correlated atoms, optical lattices, Bose model, Fermi Hubbard model, Mott transition, weakly bound molecules, BEC regimes, Fermi gases, ultracold fermions
