Abstract

We review the current understanding of the uniform two-dimensional (2D) Fermi gas with short-range interactions. We first outline the basics of two-body scattering in 2D, including a discussion of how such a 2D system may be realized in practice using an anisotropic confining potential. We then discuss the thermodynamic and dynamical properties of 2D Fermi gases, which cold-atom experiments have only just begun to explore. Of particular interest are the different pairing regimes as the interparticle attraction is varied; the superfluid transition and associated finite-temperature phenomenology; few-body properties and their impact on the many-body system; the “Fermi polaron” problem; and the symmetries underlying the collective modes.Where possible, we include the contributions from 2Dexperiment.An underlying theme throughout is the effect of the quasi-2D geometry, which we view as an added richness to the problem rather than an unwanted complication.
