Before us, an unified and exceptionally beautiful picture appears: a unique conception applies with equal success to phenomena from the micro Kelvin range up to the temperatures of the 'big bang' of the universe. It is just this feature which proves the vivid power of the physical approach to the exploration of nature.

We present a review of theories of states of quantum matter without quasiparticle excitations. Solvable examples of such states are provided through a holographic duality with gravitational theories in an emergent spatial dimension.

Introductory lectures (delivered at the VI Mexican School of Particles and Fields) on heavy quarks and heavy quark effective field theory. Applications to inclusive semileptonic decays and to interactions with light mesons are covered in detail.

The following notes are the basis for a graduate course. They are oriented towards the application of group theory to particle physics, although some of it can be used for general quantum mechanics. They have no pretense of mathematical rigor.
