Recent breakthroughs in the creation of ultra-cold atoms in the laboratory have ushered in major changes in physical science. These enormous changes in the coldest temperatures available in the laboratory mean that many novel experiments are possible, with an unprecedented control of interaction, geometry and purity. Quantum many-body theory is now facing severe challenges in quantitatively understanding new experimental results. Here, I present some recently developed theoretical techniques that are providing successful theoretical predictions [1-6].
