Understanding Complex Systems with Cold Atoms
How do we understand complex systems, like materials, where we cannot
keep track of every particle? In this talk, we will see how physicists build 
models to describe complicated phenomena and find surprising 
examples of 'emergence': very complex systems that act in surprisingly 
simple ways. One powerful tool to understand these systems is ultracold 
atoms, which can provide an experimental simulation of models of 
quantum materials, magentism, and superconductivity.
