The properties of ultracold bosonic and fermionic gases are studied with analytic and numerical methods. Central questions are related to phase transitions (BEC-Mott transition in a Bose gas, spin-ordering transition in a fermionic gas), dynamics of quantum gases and the formation of vortices in a BEC of a strongly interacting Bose gas.
