These lectures describe the basic theoretical structures underlying the quantum Hall effect. The focus is on the interplay between microscopic wavefunctions, long-distance effective Chern-Simons theories, and the modes which live on the boundary.

An interesting topic of quantum mechanics is the study of open quantum systems. By it, we mean a simple quantum system, described by one or a few degrees of freedom, interacting with a background characterized by a continuum of excitations.

These notes aim to provide a non-expert introduction to the field of circuit QED, to give a basic appreciation of the promise and challenges of the field, along with a number of key concepts that will be useful for the reader who is new to the field.

Expository notes which combine a historical survey of the development of quantum physics with a review of selected mathematical topics in quantization theory (addressed to students that are not complete novices in quantum mechanics).
