Starting from first principles, this book introduces the closely related phenomena of Bose condensation and Cooper pairing, in which a very large number of single particles or pairs of particles are forced to behave in exactly the same way, and explores their consequences in condensed matter systems. Eschewing advanced formal methods, the author uses simple concepts and arguments to account for the various qualitatively new phenomena which occur in Bose-condensed and Cooper-paired systems, including but not limited to the spectacular macroscopic phenomena of superconductivity and superfluidity. The physical systems discussed include liquid 4-He, the BEC alkali gases, "classical" superconductors, superfluid 3-He, "exotic" superconductors and the recently stabilized Fermi alkali gases. The book should be accessible to beginning graduate students in physics or advanced undergraduates.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'A wonderfully informative source, [...] a book that many condensed matter theorists can read with profit.' Physics Today, August 2007, Philip W. Anderson
There are many features that make his book an extrordinarily valuable one. Outstanding merits include the author's attempt to provide physical ideas rather than equations and to derive standard results (such as the Ginzburg-Landau formulation of superconductivity theory) in a new way. Nature Publishing Group, 2007. Dieter Volhardt.
