The purpose of this course is to introduce students to a series of paradigmatic physical problems in condensed matter, using the computer to solve them. The course will feel like a natural extension of introductory condensed matter, with extra degrees of complexity that make the problems analytically intractable to some extent. Therefore, it will also serve as a complementary condensed matter course.

Various topics at the interface between condensed matter physics and the physics of ultra-cold fermionic atoms in optical lattices are discussed. Lectures given at the Enrico Fermi Summer School on 'Ultracold Fermi Gases' in 2006.

These notes cover the formalism of correlation functions and perturbation theory, adiabatic continuity and broken symmetry -- the most important basic principles of condensed matter physics, and modern problems and more recent calculational tools.

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.

Systematic theoretical enquiry concerning the conceptual foundations and the nature of phonon-mediated electron-electron interactions. We propose a simple scheme to decouple the electrons and nuclei of a crystalline solid via effective interactions.
