Quantum few-body systems are believed to form some kind of a bridge between one- and two-body physics, well described with standard methods of quantum mechanics, and many-body world where collective properties of quantum particles have to be taken into account in the framework of statistical mechanics. In today's experiments on ultra-cold atoms it is possible to engineer, to control, and to perform measurements on few-body systems in many different schemes. This amazing experimental progress has inspired theoreticians to reformulate old and to formulate new questions on the properties of a mesoscopic number of quantum particles. In my talk I will present some subjective view to the problem of a few interacting fermions.
