**Program:**

Theoretical methods to describe the formation and dissociation of molecules in dilute quantum gases

Topics to be covered:

- Coupled Bose-Einstein condensates of atoms and molecules
- Breakdown of the mean-field theory at the Gross- Pitaevskii level
- Theory of Feshbach resonances for two particles
- Microscopic parameters: the scattering length, the effective range, and the binding energy of the highest lying bound state
- Application to real atomic systems: Rubidium-85 and Potassium-40
- Simple microscopic models for describing resonance scattering; scattering from delta-function potentials
- Example application to dilute Fermi systems; Resonance Superfluidity
- Example application to dilute Boson systems; Ramsey-fringes and Bosenova.
