A brief summary of the physics of low-dimensional quantum systems is given. The material should be accessible to advanced physics undergraduate students. References to recent review articles and books are provided when possible. 

At the edge of covalency: metallic nanotubes, low-dimensional metals and clusters

Abstract One of the main classifications of materials uses the categories of metals, semiconductors and insulators. However, the boundaries are vague. In so-called confined metals the mobility of
