The PhD student will participate in the theoretical project “Two-component mixtures of a few attractive ultra-cold fermions” inspired by the most recent experiments in the field of ultra-cold gases confined in optical traps. The main objective is to perform very accurate, realistic numerical simulations which will bring us closer to a better understanding of physics of a few attractive fermions.
