Comments: This lecture has as goal to give a broad introduction to topics of current research interest concerning quantum many-body phenomena in condensed matter (solid state) physics and quantum optics, where a quantum description is essential. Phenomena of interest are (high Tc) superconductivity, frustrated quantum magnets, one-dimensional quantum systems, Kondo systems, ultracold atoms in optical lattices, mesoscopic transport phenomena, topological insulators, topological phases and more. This lecture can serve as an introduction to topics of research and bachelor or master theses at condensed matter theory groups of the LMU.
