By Kaden Richard Alan Hazzard

The basic concentration of this thesis is to theoretically describe nanokelvin experiments in chilly atomic gases, which supply the aptitude to revolutionize our realizing of strongly correlated many-body systems.  The thesis assaults significant demanding situations of the field:  it proposes and analyzes experimental protocols to create new and fascinating states of topic and introduces theoretical concepts to explain probes of those states.  The phenomena thought of comprise the fractional quantum corridor impact, spectroscopy of strongly correlated states, and quantum criticality, between others. 

The thesis additionally clarifies experiments on disordered quantum solids, which demonstrate a number of unique phenomena and are applicants to convey so-called "supersolidity."  It collects experimental effects and constrains their interpretation via theoretical considerations.

This Doctoral Thesis has been permitted via Cornell collage, Ithaca, USA.
