# Chern-Simons Theory of Fractional Quantum Hall Effect in (pseudo) Massless Dirac Electrons

@article{Zeng2011ChernSimonsTO, title={Chern-Simons Theory of Fractional Quantum Hall Effect in (pseudo) Massless Dirac Electrons}, author={Huabi Zeng}, journal={International Journal of Modern Physics B}, year={2011}, volume={25}, pages={2779-2785} }

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.
