Nowadays Quantum Many-Body Theory (QMBT) has be-
come an essential tool for all physicists.  By its very nature
the field is interdisciplinary, and its aims are of paramount
importance in almost all areas of modern physical science
and materials research.  Simply stated, they are to under-
stand and predict the emergent properties of macroscopic
matter of all kinds, which have their underlying origins in
the  fundamental  interactions  between,  and  the  quantum-
mechanical  nature  of,  the  elementary  constituents  at  the
most microscopic level relevant to the energy range under
    The rapid evolution of the different formulations of QMBT
over the last decade, together with a serious lack of reference
books on the most recent developments, has provided the
clear rationale defining the main objectives of the proposed
Summer School.  Thus we intend to provide both a general
overview of QMB problems and modern theories available
to understand them at the fully microscopic level, and some
selected in-depth applications to physical systems of current
intense worldwide interest.
    The motivation for and the logistical structure of this
Summer School have emerged naturally from the European
Research Network in Microscopic Quantum Many-Body The-
ory: Applications to Traditional and Novel Forms of Matter,
which is presently being funded by the EC within the frame-
work of the Human Capital and Mobility Programme. The
Advisory Committee has been chosen to provide a broad
cross-section of important groups working in the fields cov-
ered by the School.  We therefore expect that the School
will be widely advertised, that the community will welcome
its organisational arrangements, and that its success will be
    The School is addressed to pre-doctoral and recent post-
doctoral researchers (typically all under 35 years in age).
The number of assistents is limited to a maximum of 60
students.  In the eventual selection process, preference will
be given to those applicants resorting from target groups as
established by the European Commission directives.
    The  cost  per  participant  (double  room  accomodation
with full board in a centric 3* Hotel) will be approximately
100,000 Pta, plus a registration fee of 25,000 Pta.  The or-
ganizers can provide some support from the Commission of
the European Communities (Training and Mobility of Re-
searchers Programme) to participants from a Member State
of the Community or from an Associated State.  This sup-
port covers travel and/or hotel and boarding expenses.


The selected main topics for this School are: The Coupled
Cluster Method, Correlated Basis Function Theory
and Monte Carlo Methods. These particular topics have
been chosen since they are widely recognized to be among
the available formulations of QMBT providing powerful tech-
niques, widely applicable and numerically accurate at the
present attainable levels of implementation.  Furthermore,
the future evolution of the field depends to a large measure
on the possibility to establish links between these different
methods,  and especially to devise hybrid procedures that
can build even further upon the huge strengths and already
great advantages of each theory. One of the main objectives
of the School will be to present the topics in such a way that
the participants are motivated to imagine and discuss with
the experts the future developments and applications of the
