Response Theory of the Electron-Phonon Coupling

This article presents a systematic theoretical enquiry concerning the conceptual foundations and the nature of phonon-mediated electron-electron interactions. Starting from the fundamental many-body Hamiltonian, we propose a simple scheme to decouple the electrons and nuclei of a crystalline solid via effective interactions.

This book introduces the theoretical description of quantum fluids. The focus is on gaseous atomic Bose-Einstein condensates and, to a minor extent, superfluid helium, but the underlying concepts are relevant to other forms of quantum fluids.

DFT is not just another way of solving the Schroedinger equation. Density functional theory is a completely different, rigorous way of approaching any interacting problem, by mapping it exactly to a much easier-to-solve non-interacting problem.

These notes were prepared for the one-semester course in theoretical physics of soft condensed matter physics for master students. The aim of the course is to provide a broad review the phenomena and the concepts characteristic of soft matter.
