Since an atomic Bose-Einstein condensate, predicted by Einstein in 1925, was first produced in the laboratory in 1995, the study of ultracold Bose and Fermi gases has become one of the most active areas in contemporary physics. This book explains phenomena in ultracold gases from basic principles, without assuming a detailed knowledge of atomic, condensed matter, and nuclear physics. This new edition has been revised and updated, and includes new chapters on optical lattices, low dimensions, and strongly-interacting Fermi systems. This book provides a unified introduction to the physics of ultracold atomic Bose and Fermi gases for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, as well as experimentalists and theorists. Chapters cover the statistical physics of trapped gases, atomic properties, cooling and trapping atoms, interatomic interactions, structure of trapped condensates, collective modes, rotating condensates, superfluidity, interference phenomena, and trapped Fermi gases. Problems are included at the end of each chapter.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review of the first edition: '... an excellent and much-needed text of the theory of these condensates ... Although progress continues at a cracking pace, there is now a set of basic notions that it is sensible to teach postgraduates, including the way that condensates are made and their physical properties as macroscopic quantum systems. This book is an excellent source of information on this topic, and is accessible to a wide range of physicists and chemists ... likely to be a best seller in its category. This well-produced book is a must buy for anyone wanting to get started in this field.' Keith Burnett, Nature
Review of the first edition: 'Bose-Einstein Condensation in Dilute Gases will be useful to newcomers to the field and will help researchers with diverse backgrounds communicate with each other. It is an excellent text, a broad survey with some in-depth discussions ... an excellent text such as [this] is needed in these exciting times.' Physics Today
