Is the “particle number” of “electrons” well defined in Wen's string-net theory of elementary particles?
According to professor Wen's string-net theory(Colloquium: Photons and electrons as emergent phenomena, Levin and Wen, Rev. Mod. Phys. 77, 871(2005), see e.g. http://arxiv.org/abs/cond-mat/0407140), ...
I am in the process of applying Beenakker's tunneling master equation theory of quantum dots (with some generalizations) to some problems of non-adiabatic charge pumping. As a part of this work I ...
