Physical systems containing a mesoscopic number of particles form a general and natural bridge between single-particle problems and many-body physics. Therefore, a better understanding of properties of such systems and their scalability has fundamental importance in different areas of physics. Natural universality of the few-body systems is, however, not well exploited, and physicists working on seemingly different problems do not always take advantage of successive progress in the whole field. One of the natural connections between different mesoscopic systems arises from the fact that all few-body systems are very elusive for standard analytical and computational techniques, i.e., these systems are too complicated for straightforward analytical or quasi-analytical treatments, and at the same time, they are too small if many-body methods are considered. Therefore, developments of theoretical and experimental techniques dedicated to these systems should be broadly promoted.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to open another platform for scientific discussions and exchange different ideas related to few-body systems. We welcome contributions from all areas of physics where classical or quantum systems of several particles are considered. The Issue is open not only to theoretical as well as experimental works dedicated to ideas, methods, and techniques building our understanding of few-body systems but also for papers where different interesting properties of such systems are studied and discussed. In this issue, we would also like to promote the idea that well-controlled few-atom systems may serve as quantum simulators for different few-body problems and help to explore spectacular consequences of a collective behavior originating in interparticle interactions and quantum statistics. Therefore, we invite everyone having scientific interests in atomic and molecular physics, condensed and soft matter physics, nuclear and particle physics, stellar and astrophysics, or computational and mathematical physics to contribute with papers focusing on few-body problems.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Mathematics is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
