Understanding systems containing few particles is essential for science. Few-body systems at different energy scales exhibit common characteristic properties, such as the shell structure of atoms and nuclei. Using ultracold atoms it is possible to realize generic systems that can be manipulated in a variety of ways. Ensembles consisting of few ultracold atoms can thus contribute to answer open questions of few-body physics.
