During the last years condensed matter theory made an enormous progress.
New phenomena led to new methods and concepts. The goal of this course is
to introduce these methods and concept and to understand some of the new
Important new phenomena are:
All these phenomena belong to the area of strongly correlated systems.
One focus of this course are methods to treat such systems.
We will start with second quantization, and we will develop a field
theoretical formulation of models of interacting fermions or bosons.
This serves as a starting point for perturbational approaches, for
effective field theories, and for renormalization.
The second focus is to use these and other methods to understand the
physics of strongly correlated systems, esp. strongly correlated Fermi systems.
The above mentioned examples fall into this class, as well as several other
phenomena we will discuss in this course.
