Many-Body Physics with Ultracold Gases
This paper reviews recent experimental and theoretical progress concerning many-body phenomena in dilute, ultracold gases. It focuses on effects beyond standard weak-coupling descriptions, such as
Dynamics of the dissipative two-state system
This paper presents the results of a functional-integral approach to the dynamics of a two-state system coupled to a dissipative environment. It is primarily an extended account of results obtained
Theory of ground state cooling of a mechanical oscillator using dynamical backaction.
A quantum theory of cooling of a mechanical oscillator by radiation pressure-induced dynamical backaction is developed, which is analogous to sideband cooling of trapped ions, and it is shown that the final average occupancy can be retrieved directly from the optical output spectrum.
The BCS-BEC crossover and the unitary fermi gas
There has been great excitement about the recent experimental and theoretical progress in elucidating the Bardeen-Cooper-Schrieffer (BCS) to Bose Einstein condensation (BEC) crossover in ultracold
Mott-Hubbard transition of cold atoms in optical lattices
We discuss the superfluid (SF) to Mott-insulator transition of cold atoms in optical lattices recently observed by Greiner et al (2002 Nature 415 39). The fundamental properties of both phases and
Thermodynamics of the BCS-BEC crossover
We present a self-consistent theory for the thermodynamics of the BCS-BEC crossover in the normal and superfluid phase which is both conserving and gapless. It is based on the variational many-body
Spectral Functions and rf Response of Ultracold Fermionic Atoms
We present a calculation of the spectral functions and the associated rf response of ultracold fermionic atoms near a Feshbach resonance. The single particle spectra are peaked at energies that can
Polaron-to-molecule transition in a strongly imbalanced Fermi gas
A single down spin Fermion with an attractive, zero range interaction with a Fermi sea of up-spin Fermions forms a polaronic quasiparticle. The associated quasipart icle weight vanishes beyond a
Density matrix renormalization group for disordered bosons in one dimension
We calculate the zero-temperature phase diagram of the disordered Bose-Hubbard model in one dimension using the density matrix renormalization group. For integer filling the Mott insulator is always
