The hierarchy of incompressible fractional quantum Hall states
Fractional quantum Hall effect in the second Landau level: The importance of inter-composite-fermion interaction
Exact diagonalization of a two-dimensional electron gas in a strong magnetic field in the disk geometry shows that there exists a filling factor range in the second Landau level where the states
Construction of a paired wave function for spinless electrons at filling fractionν=2∕5
We construct a wavefunction, generalizing the well known Moore-Read Pfaffian, that describes spinless electrons at filling fraction nu=2/5 (or bosons at filling fraction nu=2/3) as the ground state
Three-body correlations and finite-size effects in Moore-Read states on a sphere
Two- and three-body correlations in partially filled degenerate fermion shells are studied numerically for various interactions between the particles. Three distinct correlation regimes are defined,
Pairing and condensation of Laughlin quasiparticles in fractional quantum hall systems
From the analysis of their interaction pseudopotentials, it is argued that (at certain filling factors) Laughlin quasiparticles can form pairs. It is further proposed that such pairs could have
Experimental studies of the fractional quantum Hall effect in the first excited Landau level
We present a spectrum of experimental data on the fractional quantum Hall effect (FQHE) states in the first excited Landau level, obtained in an ultrahigh mobility two-dimensional electron system and
Fractional quantum Hall states of clustered composite fermions
The energy spectra and wave functions of up to 14 interacting quasielectrons (QE's) in the Laughlin $\ensuremath{\nu}=\frac{1}{3}$ fractional quantum Hall (FQH) state are investigated using exact
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 of


Electron correlations in partially filled lowest and excited Landau levels
The electron correlations near the half-filling of the lowest and excited Landau levels (LL's) are studied using numerical diagonalization. It is shown that in the low-lying states electrons avoid
Quantum Hall states at filling fraction $\nu$=5/2 are examined by numerical diagonalization. Spin-polarized and -unpolarized states of systems with $N\le 18$ electrons are studied, neglecting effects
Two-dimensional electron-hole systems in a strong magnetic field: Composite fermion picture for multicomponent plasmas
Electron-hole systems on a Haldane sphere are studied by exact numerical diagonalization. Low-lying states contain one or more types of bound charged excitonic complexes X{sub k}{sup {minus}},
Observation of an even-denominator quantum number in the fractional quantum Hall effect.
An even-denominator rational quantum number has been observed in the Hall resistance of a two-dimensional electron system and is absent in the lowest Landau level under comparable conditions.
Two-Dimensional Magnetotransport in the Extreme Quantum Limit
A quantized Hall plateau of ρxy=3he2, accompanied by a minimum in ρxx, was observed at T<5 K in magnetotransport of high-mobility, two-dimensional electrons, when the lowest-energy, spin-polarized
Evidence for a phase transition in the fractional quantum Hall effect.
A novel transition between distinct fractional quantum Hall states sharing the same filling fraction ν=8/5 is observed, implying a transition from a spin-unpolarized quantum fluid at small angles to a polarized one at higher angles.

It is proposed that the fractional quantum Hall effect of electrons can be physically understood as a manifestation of the integer quantumHall effect of composite fermionic objects consisting of electrons bound to an even number of flux quanta.
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.
