Educational objectives
Knowledge of elementary techniques for facing quantum many-body problems
Prerequisites
It is essential to have coursed lectures in Quantum Mechanics, mathematical methods for Physics.

The knowledge of elementary relativistic Quantum Mechanics would be very useful.
Teaching methods
face-to-face lectures
Learning verification modality
Oral exam, consisting on the answer to three questions taken from a list provided to the students during the lectures, aimet at

establishing the acquisition of technical skills, and at verifying the level of understanding

of the subject. The exam has a total duration of one hour.
Extended program
Methods of solution of quantum many-body problems for
systems of independent particles and systems of correlated particles
in first and second quantization. Examples and applications.
Nuclear Matter as a case study.
