What is the significance of the magnetic translation operator used in describing the Fractional Quantum hall effect? I was following Anthony Leggett's lecture video in which he defines these operators ...
What is the `physical' meaning of consistent anomalies and covariant anomalies? Perhaps a good Reference is: Consistent and covariant anomalies in gauge and gravitational theories - William A. ...
Edge theory of FQHE - Unable to produce Green's function from anticommutation relations and equation of motion?
I'm studying the edge theory of the fractional quantum Hall effect (FQHE) and I've stumbled on a peculiar contradiction concerning the bosonization procedure which I am unable to resolve. Help! In ...
How do you obtain the commutation relations at non-equal times (for the edge of a fractional quantum Hall state)?
The edge of a fractional quantum Hall state is an example of a chiral Luttinger liquid. Take, for the sake of simplicity, the edge of the Laughlin state. The Hamiltonian is: $$H = ...
Imagine a partially filled $\nu=1$ state of the integer quantum Hall effect (IQHE). One way to think about it is to imagine a gas of electrons where each particle is locked to the lowest quantum state ...
