A Primer on Quantum Fluids
by Carlo F. Barenghi, Nick G. Parker
Publisher: Springer 2016
Number of pages: 132
This book introduces the theoretical description and properties of quantum fluids. The focus is on gaseous atomic Bose-Einstein condensates and, to a minor extent, superfluid helium, but the underlying concepts are relevant to other forms of quantum fluids such as polariton and photonic condensates. The book is pitched at the level of advanced undergraduates and early postgraduate students.

Systematic theoretical enquiry concerning the conceptual foundations and the nature of phonon-mediated electron-electron interactions. We propose a simple scheme to decouple the electrons and nuclei of a crystalline solid via effective interactions.

This paper reviews recent experimental and theoretical progress concerning many-body phenomena in dilute, ultracold gases. It focuses on effects beyond standard weak-coupling descriptions, such as the Mott-Hubbard transition in optical lattices, etc.
