Abstract

The advent of laser cooling of atoms [1] led to the discovery of ultra-cold matter, with temperatures well bellow the liquid Helium, which displays a variety of new physical phenomena. It is the aim of this book to give an overview of this recent area of science, with a discussion of its main results and an description of its theoretical concepts and methods.
