We review the basic aspects of electrons in graphene (two-dimensional graphite) exposed to a strong perpendicular magnetic field. One of its most salient features is the relativistic quantum Hall effect the observation of which has been the experimental breakthrough in identifying pseudo-relativistic massless charge carriers as the low-energy excitations in graphene. The effect may be understood in terms of Landau quantization for massless Dirac fermions, which is also the theoretical basis for… Expand

TLDR
These studies linked to the nuclear magnetic resonance experiments and the associated model calculations in α-(BEDT-TTF)2I3 provide unique opportunities to resolve the momentum dependence of the spin excitations and fluctuations that are strongly influenced by the long-range interaction near the Dirac points.

Modulated phases of graphene quantum Hall polariton fluids
TLDR
It is shown that electron–electron interactions are responsible for an instability of graphene integer quantum Hall polariton fluids towards a modulated phase, and this phase can be detected by measuring the collective excitation spectra. Expand

Fractional quantum Hall effect and insulating phase of Dirac electrons in graphene
TLDR
The quintessential collective quantum behaviour in two dimensions, the fractional quantum Hall effect (FQHE), has so far resisted observation in graphene despite intense efforts and theoretical predictions of its existence and it is believed that these results will open the door to the physics of FQHE and other collective behaviour in graphene.
