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, with extra degrees of complexity that make the problems analytically intractable to some extent. Therefore, it will also serve as a complementary condensed matter course.

I aim to discuss a reasonably wide range of quantum-mechanical phenomena from condensed matter physics, with an emphasis mainly on physical ideas. The most important prerequisite is some understanding of second quantization for fermions and bosons.

DFT is not just another way of solving the Schroedinger equation. Density functional theory is a completely different, rigorous way of approaching any interacting problem, by mapping it exactly to a much easier-to-solve non-interacting problem.

Important progress in understanding the behavior of hadronic matter at high density has been achieved recently. We discuss the phase diagram of QCD as a function of temperature and density, and close with a look at possible astrophysical signatures.
