How decoherence affects the transition? Other dimensions: D, 4D, 5D? ε More generally What is the effect of interactions on the transition? Use a Bose-Einstein condensate and Feshbach resonances Still more generally Simulation of condensed matter systems by dynamical, cold atom systems For example: Harper model : J. Wang and J.
