Few- & Many-Body Physics in Cold Quantum Gases Near Resonances

Since the observation of Feshbach resonances in cold atoms, tremendous effort, both theoretically and experimentally, has been made to understand the physics of resonant ultra-cold atoms. These recent developments have led to exciting opportunities to investigate many of the most fundamental issues in few- and many-body atomic physics that have not previously been explored. The challenges we face are not only at the heart of few- and many-body physics but are also intimately related to fascinating phenomena in other fields. The impact of potential breakthroughs here goes far beyond AMO physics. This workshop in Aspen in the summer of 2011,with a strong emphasis on topics or questions that have not been thoroughly studied previously, nor are well understood, would provide a great platform for experts in the field to get together, exchange ideas on these topics, and develop potentially productive collaborations.
