Liquid 4He does not solidify on cooling but exhibits a very low density and loses its viscosity below a critical temperature. If the liquid is set in rotation, quantized vortex lines are created. This survey sets out to show that these phenomena can only be understood by taking into account the wave nature of matter and treating the liquid quantum mechanically.
