We derive the effective-field theory from the microscopic Hamiltonian of interacting two-dimensional (pseudo) Dirac electrons by performing a statistic gauge transformation. The quantized Hall conductance are expected to be σxy=e2/h(2k-1) where k is arbitrary integer. There are also topological excitations which have fractional charge and obey fractional statistics. 


Quantum Mechanics of Fractional-Spin Particles
Composites formed from charged particles and vortices in (2+1)-dimensional models, or flux tubes in three-dimensional models, can have any (fractional) angular momentum. The statistics of theseExpand
Effective-field-theory model for the fractional quantum Hall effect.
A field-theory model for the fractional quantum Hall effect and an approximate coarse-grained version of the same model are derived, and a Landau-Ginzburg theory similar to that of Girvin is constructed. Expand
Fractional Statistics and the Quantum Hall Effect
The statistics of quasiparticles entering the quantum Hall effect are deduced from the adiabatic theorem. These excitations are found to obey fractional statistics, a result closely related to theirExpand
Fractional quantum Hall effect in graphene
Unlike regular electron spin, the pseudospin degeneracy of Fermi points in graphene does not couple directly to magnetic field. Therefore graphene provides a natural vehicle to observe the integralExpand
Quantum critical scaling in graphene.
We show that the emergent relativistic symmetry of electrons in graphene near its quantum critical point (QCP) implies a crucial importance of the Coulomb interaction. We derive scaling laws, validExpand
The Chern-Simons-Landau-Ginzburg theory of the fractional quantum Hall effect
This paper gives a systematic review of a field theoretical approach to the fractional quantum Hall effect (FQHE) that has been developed in the past few years. We first illustrate some simpleExpand
Two-dimensional gas of massless Dirac fermions in graphene
This study reports an experimental study of a condensed-matter system (graphene, a single atomic layer of carbon) in which electron transport is essentially governed by Dirac's (relativistic) equation and reveals a variety of unusual phenomena that are characteristic of two-dimensional Dirac fermions.

Anomalous quantum Hall effect: An incompressible quantum fluid with fractionally charged excitations
This Letter presents variational ground-state and excited-state wave functions which describe the condensation of a two-dimensional electron gas into a new state of matter.
Statistical mechanics of anyons
Abstract We study the statistical mechanics of a two-dimensional gas of free anyons-particles which interpolate between Bose-Einstein and Fermi-Dirac character. Thermodynamic quantities are discussedExpand
Fractional quantum Hall States of Dirac electrons in graphene.
The fractional quantum Hall states of Dirac electrons in a graphene layer in different Landau levels are investigated, finding that the ground state of the 2/3 system is fully valley-unpolarized and the energy gaps for electrons on the Landau-level index are suppressed. Expand
