From few to many body degrees of freedom.
Here, I focus on the use of microscopic, few-body techniques that are relevant in the many-body problem. These methods can be divided into indirect and direct. In particular, indirect methods are concerned with the simplification of the many-body problem by substituting the full, microscopic interactions by pseudopotentials which are designed to reproduce collisional information at specified energies, or binding energies in the few-body sector. These simplified interactions yield more tractable theories of the many-body problem, and are equivalent to effective field theory of interactions. Direct methods, which so far are most useful in one spatial dimension, have the goal of attacking the many-body problem at once by using few-body information only. Here, I will present non-perturbative direct methods to study one-dimensional fermionic and bosonic gases in one dimension.

Keeping up-to-date with research can feel impossible, with papers being published faster than you'll ever be able to read them. That's where Researcher comes in: we're simplifying discovery and making important discussions happen. With over 19,000 sources, including peer-reviewed journals, preprints, blogs, universities, podcasts and Live events across 10 research areas, you'll never miss what's important to you. It's like social media, but better. Oh, and we should mention - it's free.
Researcher displays publicly available abstracts and doesn’t host any full article content. If the content is open access, we will direct clicks from the abstracts to the publisher website and display the PDF copy on our platform. Clicks to view the full text will be directed to the publisher website, where only users with subscriptions or access through their institution are able to view the full article.
