The Condensed Matter Physics of QCD
by Krishna Rajagopal, Frank Wilczek
Publisher: arXiv 2000
Number of pages: 91
Important progress in understanding the behavior of hadronic matter at high density has been achieved recently, by adapting the techniques of condensed matter theory. We discuss the phase diagram of QCD as a function of temperature and density, and close with a look at possible astrophysical signatures.

This text summarizes the experimental frontier of ultra cold fermionic gases. It is based on three lectures which one of the authors gave at the Varenna summer school describing the experimental techniques used to study ultracold fermionic gases.

The purpose of this course is to introduce students to a series of paradigmatic physical problems in condensed matter, using the computer to solve them. The course will feel like a natural extension of introductory condensed matter.

In this text we give a self-contained introduction to symmetric spaces and their main characteristics. We take an algebraic approach; therefore it is not necessary to know almost anything about differential geometry to be able to follow the outline.
