Abstract (summary)

In this thesis we derive minimal effective Hamiltonians from more detailed theories which are used to predict novel quantum phases of solid state and atomic and molecular systems. We consider the solid state systems of transition metal dichalcogenides, strands of stretched poly (CG)-poly (CG) DNA, and carbon nanotubes. The cold atomic and molecular systems we consider are alkali atoms in the F = 2 hyperfine state and dipolar molecules in an optical lattice.
