This chapter reviews the theoretical understanding of Bose and Fermi superfluids under rotation (or in an effective magnetic field) while placing this in context of the current experimental status. It focuses on theoretical predictions of the novel phases that can appear. One goal is to establish the connections with the physics of the fractional quantum Hall effect of electrons in semiconductors. As the chapter is intended to be tutorial in nature, it concentrates on the qualitative features and simple model calculations to present the essential ideas in as physically transparent a way as possible. It begins with a brief review of the properties of Bose–Einstein condensates subjected to rotation.

Keywords: superfluids; rotation; fractional quantum Hall effect; Bose–Einstein condensates; Bose superfluids; Fermi superfluids
