An Introduction to Symmetric Spaces

Publisher: arXiv 2002
Number of pages: 66
Recently, the theory of symmetric spaces has come to play an increased role in the physics of integrable systems and in quantum transport problems. In addition, it provides a classification of random matrix theories. In this paper we give a self--contained introduction to symmetric spaces and their main characteristics. We take an algebraic approach; therefore it is not necessary to know almost anything about differential geometry to be able to follow the outline.

The development of methods of quantum statistical mechanics is considered in light of their applications to quantum solid-state theory. We discuss fundamental problems of the physics of magnetic materials and methods of quantum theory of magnetism.

This text summarizes the experimental frontier of ultra cold fermionic gases. It is based on three lectures which one of the authors gave at the Varenna summer school describing the experimental techniques used to study ultracold fermionic gases.
