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.
