Title: The Stability of Matter in Quantum Mechanics

Description: This is a series of Lectures on the Stability of Matter, which will be held in the context of the “Jornadas de Matemáticas de la Zona Sur”, Concepción, Chile, April 2017.

References: The main textbook to be used is the recent monograph by Elliott H.Lieb and Robert Seiringer, the Stability of Matter in Quantum Mechanics, Cambridge University Press 2010.
We will also use the lectures notes Stability of matter of the course given by Michael Loss in 2005 at Ludwig Maximilian University (Munich). Germany. Moreover, we will use some of the key papers in this field published during the last 40 years. Finally, we will also use the notes by Rafael Benguria (RB), and B. Loewe prepared for a similar course given by RB at i) the National University of Singapur in February 2010, ii) at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile in September 2010, and at the Ludwig Maximilian University (Munich. Germany) in May–June 2011.
