Abstract: These lectures will provide a basic introduction to the methods of integrability and their use in atomic and condensed matter physics. Focusing on the Lieb-Liniger model of interacting bosons as well as on the Heisenberg spin chains, the coordinate and algebraic Bethe Ansatz will be explained. Integrability-based calculations of equilibrium correlation functions will be discussed, as well as more recent aplications to out-of-equilibrium dynamics following a quantum quench.
