This text introduces the key concepts of superconductivity, superfluidity and Bose-Einstein condensates, three extremely important and rapidly developing fields of research which are closely related intellectually, in spite of their very different physical systems. The topics are developed alongside the necessary mathematical tools and no previous knowledge of quantum many-body theory is necessary.
