Effective Interactions are Effective Interactions

The use of effective interactions - forms valid in only a limited range of parameter space - has become widespread in contemporary physics. Examples of the use of such techniques will be presented from classical mechanics, from quantum mechanics, and from quantum field theory. In the latter case, we present applications in particle/nuclear physics and also show how the idea of effective interactions can be used in order to make sense of quantum gravity.
