 Publisher's Summary
 Quantum electrodynamics (QED), one of the most successful physical theories, has proven to possess admirable quantitative predictive power, yet its consistent mathematical formulation is still unknown. The present book explores various facets of the progress of developing such a formulation, in both the nonrelativistic and relativistic realms. "Large Coulomb Systems" contains selected, expanded and edited lectures given at a topical summer school by international experts in the field. As such, it is intended as a highlevel introduction for graduate students, postdocs and nonspecialists from related fields.
