additional remarks In condensed matter physics, experiments at low temperature, high pressure and high magnetic field are widely used to elucidate the physical properties of a material. In this lecture, starting with He and going to modern unconventional superconductors, we will investigate the phase diagrams of various correlated materials. We will dig into the physics of the appearing groundstates which are induced by changes of temperature, pressure or field, with the aim to draw analogies between different systems. A part of the lecture will also deal with the technical aspects of how extreme conditions are produced in the laboratory. 1) Low temperature Properties of quantum liquids Fermi liquid Superfluidity in 3He and 4He Two-fluid model Bose Einstein condensation Phase transitions Unconventional superconductivity Low temperature techniques 2) High pressure Pressure-induced phase transitions Quantum phase transitions Phase diagrams of correlated electron systems High pressure techniques 3) High magnetic field High field techniques Quantum oscillations Field induced phase transitions
