Strong coupling between matter and quantized electromagnetic modes may offer yet another approach of controlling equilibrium phases or dynamics of quantum many-body systems. Recent developments have realized such strong light-matter interaction in genuinely nonperturbative regimes, where conventional theoretical methods often fail. I will talk about how one can analyze strongly coupled quantum light-matter systems at arbitrary interaction strengths on the basis of an asymptotically disentangling unitary transformation [1,2]. I discuss its application to construction of tight-binding Hamiltonians, dynamics of bound states in the continuum, and revisiting dissipative quantum phase transition in resistively shunted Josephson junctions [3].
