Summary 
Condensed matter systems where interactions are strong are inherently difficult to analyze theoretically. The situation is particularly interesting in lowdimensional systems, where quantum fluctuations play a crucial role. Here, the development of nonperturbative methods and the study of integrable field theory have facilitated the understanding of the behavior of many quasi one and twodimensional strongly correlated systems. In view of the same rapid development that has taken place for both experimental and numerical techniques, as well as the emergence of novel testinggrounds such as cold atoms or graphene, the current understanding of strongly correlated condensed matter systems differs quite considerably from standard textbook presentations. The present volume of lecture notes aims to fill this gap in the literature by providing a collection of authoritative tutorial reviews, covering such topics as quantum phase transitions of antiferromagnets and cupratebased hightemperature superconductors, electronic liquid crystal phases, graphene physics, dynamical mean field theory applied to strongly correlated systems, transport through quantum dots, quantum information perspectives on manybody physics, frustrated magnetism, statistical mechanics of classical and quantum computational complexity, and integrable methods in statistical field theory. As both graduatelevel text and authoritative reference on this topic, this book will benefit newcomers and more experienced researchers in this field alike
