I am trying to do some Monte Carlo simulations for Pfaffian state from Fractional Quantum Hall effect. I am wondering what is the energy functional for $\nu=5/2$ Moore-Read state?
In the past few days I've become increasingly intrigued by the QHE, mainly thanks to very interesting questions and answers that have appeared here. Unfortunately, I am as of yet very confused by all ...
In this review of the QHE, Steve Girvin makes the following statement (bottom of pg. 6, beginning of Sec. 1.1.1): As one learns in the study of scaling in the localization transition, resistivity ...
There are a number of physical systems with phases described by topologically protected invariants (fractional quantum Hall, topological insulators) but what are the simplest mathematical models that ...
