# Chern-Simons vortices

@article{Duval1997ChernSimonsV, title={Chern-Simons vortices}, author={Christian Duval and P. A. Horvathy}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory}, year={1997} }

In (2+1) dimensions, the Maxwell term $-(1/4) F_{\alpha\beta}F^{\alpha\beta}$ can be replaced by the Chern-Simons three-form $(\kappa/4)\epsilon^{\alpha\beta\gamma}A_\alpha F_{\beta\gamma}$, yielding a novel type of `electromagnetism'. This has been proposed for studying the Quantum Hall Effect as well as High-Temperature Superconductivity. The gauge field can be coupled to a scalar field either relativistically or non-relativistically. In both cases, one admits finite-energy, vortex solutions.
