Enlarged planar Galilean symmetry, built of both space-time and field variables and also incorporating the ``exotic\'\' central extension is introduced. It is used to describe non-relativistic anyons coupled to an electromagnetic field. Our theory exhibits an anomalous velocity relation of the type used to explain the Anomalous Hall Effect. The Hall motions, characterized by a Casimir of the enlarged algebra, become mandatory for some critical value(s) of the magnetic field. The extension of… Expand
Exotic Galilean Symmetry and Non-Commutative Mechanics ?
Some aspects of the "exotic" particle, associated with the two-parameter central extension of the planar Galilei group are reviewed. A fundamental property is that it has non-commuting positionExpand
Nonrelativistic anyons in external electromagnetic field
Abstract The first-order, infinite-component field equations we proposed before for nonrelativistic anyons (identified with particles in the plane with noncommuting coordinates) are generalized toExpand
Centaurus: enlarged exotic Galilei symmetry, electric-translation transmutation and noncommutative plane
The extended, “Centaurus” planar model for a charged particle is constructed. It includes a Chern-Simons-like term for a dynamical electric field, but produces usual equations of motion for theExpand
Noncommuting Coordinates, Exotic Particles, and Anomalous Anyons in the Hall Effect
We review our previous “exotic” particle, together with the more recent anomalous anyon model (which has the arbitrary gyromagnetic factor g). The nonrelativistic limit of the anyon generalizes theExpand
Acceleration-extended Galilean symmetries with central charges and their dynamical realizations
Abstract We add to Galilean symmetries the transformations describing constant accelerations. The corresponding extended Galilean algebra allows, in any dimension D = d + 1 , the introduction of oneExpand
Electric Chern-Simons term, enlarged exotic Galilei symmetry and noncommutative plane

Exotic Galilean conformal symmetry and its dynamical realisations
Abstract The six-dimensional exotic Galilean algebra in ( 2 + 1 ) dimensions with two central charges m and θ , is extended when m = 0 , to a ten-dimensional Galilean conformal algebra withExpand
Hamiltonian theory of anyons in crystals
Semiclassical wave packets for electrons in crystals, subject to an external electromagnetic field, satisfy Hamiltonian equations. In (2+1)-dimensions and in the limit of uniform fields, the symmetryExpand
Non-relativistic symmetries in three space-time dimensions and the Nappi-Witten algebra
Abstract We show that the Extended Bargmann and Newton-Hooke algebras in 2+1 dimensions can be obtained as expansions of the Nappi-Witten algebra. The procedure can be generalized to obtain twoExpand
Symmetries of Non-relativistic Field Theories on the Non-Commutative Plane ∗
New developments on non-relativistic field theoretical models on the non commutative plane are reviewed. It is shown in particular that Galilean invariance strongly restricts the admissibleExpand


The exotic Galilei group and the “Peierls substitution”
Taking advantage of the two-parameter central extension of the planar Galilei group, we construct a non relativistic particle model in the plane. Owing to the extra structure, the coordinates do notExpand
Non-relativistic anyons, exotic Galilean symmetry and noncommutative plane
We show that the Lukierski et al. model, invariant with respect to the two-fold centrally extended Galilei group, can be decomposed into an infinite number of independent copies (differing in theirExpand
Exotic Galilean symmetry in the non-commutative plane and the Hall effect
Quantum mechanics in the non-commutative plane is shown to admit the 'exotic' symmetry of the doubly centrally extended Galilei group. When coupled to a planar magnetic field whose strength is theExpand
Anyons with anomalous gyromagnetic ratio and the Hall effect
Letting the mass depend on the spin-field coupling as M2=m2−(eg/2c2)FαβSαβ, we propose a new set of relativistic planar equations of motion for spinning anyons. Our model can accommodate anyExpand

A semiclassical theory for the dynamics of electrons in a magnetic Bloch band, where the Berry phase plays an important role is developed, and an Onsager-like formula for the quantization of cyclotron orbits is derived. Expand
