We extend the concept of an entanglement spectrum from the geometrical to the particle bipartite partition. We apply this to several fractional quantum Hall wave functions on both sphere and torus geometries to show that this new type of entanglement spectra completely reveals the physics of bulk quasihole excitations. While this is easily understood when a local Hamiltonian for the model state exists, we show that the quasihole wave functions are encoded within the model state even when such a… CONTINUE READING
