Non-Abelian Anyons and Topological Quantum Computation
Topological quantum computation has emerged as one of the most exciting approaches to constructing a fault-tolerant quantum computer. The proposal relies on the existence of topological states ofExpand

Observation of half-integer thermal Hall conductance
Topological states of matter are characterized by topological invariants, which are physical quantities whose values are quantized and do not depend on the details of the system (such as its shape,Expand

Observation of a quarter of an electron charge at the ν = 5/2 quantum Hall state
The fractional quantum Hall effect, where plateaus in the Hall resistance at values of h/νe2 coexist with zeros in the longitudinal resistance, results from electron correlations in two dimensionsExpand

Theory of the Fabry-Perot quantum Hall interferometer
We analyze interference phenomena in the quantum-Hall analog of the Fabry-Perot interferometer, exploring the roles of the Aharonov-Bohm effect, Coulomb interactions, and fractional statistics on theExpand

Proposed experiments to probe the non-Abelian nu = 5/2 quantum hall state.
We propose several experiments to test the non-Abelian nature of quasiparticles in the fractional quantum Hall state at nu = 5/2. In a simplified version of the experiment suggested by [S. Das Sarma,Expand

Diverse Plasma Populations and Structures in Jupiter's Magnetotail
Jupiter's magnetotail is the largest cohesive structure in the solar system and marks the loss of vast numbers of heavy ions from the Jupiter system. The New Horizons spacecraft traversed theExpand

Fractional topological insulators.
We analyze generalizations of two-dimensional topological insulators which can be realized in interacting, time reversal invariant electron systems. These states, which we call fractional topologicalExpand

Role of interactions in an electronic Fabry–Perot interferometer operating in the quantum Hall effect regime
Interference of edge channels is expected to be a prominent tool for studying statistics of charged quasiparticles in the quantum Hall effect (QHE). We present here a detailed study of an electronicExpand

Theory of Disorder-Induced Half-Integer Thermal Hall Conductance.
The thermal Hall conductance in the half-filled first Landau level was recently measured to take the quantized noninteger value κ_{xy}=5/2 (in units of temperature times π^{2}k_{B}^{2}/3h), whichExpand
