This book introduces the theoretical description 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.

Book cover: The ABC of Density Functional TheoryThe ABC of Density Functional Theory
by - University of California, Irvine
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.

Book cover: An Introduction to Symmetric SpacesAn Introduction to Symmetric Spaces
by - arXiv
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.
