The fast-growing field of soft matter research requires increasingly sophisticated tools for experimental studies. The aim of this text is to introduce a variety of optical microscopy techniques available to soft matter researchers, starting from basic principles and finishing with a discussion of the most advanced microscopy systems.

This paper reviews recent experimental and theoretical progress concerning many-body phenomena in dilute, ultracold gases. It focuses on effects beyond standard weak-coupling descriptions, such as the Mott-Hubbard transition in optical lattices, etc.

Important progress in understanding the behavior of hadronic matter at high density has been achieved recently. We discuss the phase diagram of QCD as a function of temperature and density, and close with a look at possible astrophysical signatures.

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.
