We discuss the theory of particles with fractional statistics, termed anyons by Wilczek. We show that anyons can be viewed as charged point particles with an infinitesimally thin flux tube, and
Non-Abelian Anyons: Statistical Repulsion and Topological Quantum Computation
As opposed to classical mechanics, quantum mechanical particles can be truly identical and lead to new and interesting phenomena. Identical particles can be of different types, determined by their ...
Quasiparticles in the Quantum Hall Effect
The fractional quantum Hall effect (FQHE), discovered in 1982 in a two-dimensional electron system, has generated a wealth of successful theory and new concepts in condensed matter physics, but is ...
Information Theory and Statistical Mechanics Revisited
We derive Bose-Einstein statistics and Fermi-Dirac statistics by Principle of Maximum Entropy applied to two families of entropy functions different from the Boltzmann-Gibbs-Shannon entropy. These
Anyons in quantum mechanics with a minimal length
Abstract.The existence of anyons, i.e. quantum states with an arbitrary spin, is a generic feature of standard quantum mechanics in (2 + 1) -dimensional Minkowski spacetime. Here it is shown that
Quantum entanglement in one-dimensional anyons
Anyons in one spatial dimension can be defined by correctly identifying the configuration space of indistinguishable particles and imposing Robin boundary conditions. This allows an interpolation
Fractional statistics and confinement
It is shown that a pointlike composite having charge and magnetic moment displays a confining potential for the static interaction while simultaneously obeying fractional statistics in a pure gauge
Quantum Statistical Enhancement of the Collective Performance of Multiple Bosonic Engines.
It is shown that quantum statistical effects can give rise to a genuine quantum enhancement of the collective thermodynamic performance when multiple indistinguishable bosonic work resources are coupled to an external system.
Fractional Zero-Point Angular Momenta in Noncommutative Quantum Mechanics
Abstract The charged particle confined by a harmonic potential in a noncommutative planar phase space interacting with a homogeneous dynamical magnetic field and Aharonov-Bohm potentials is studied.
Fractal Operators in Non-Equilibrium Field Theory
Relativistic quantum field theory (QFT) describes fundamental interactions between elementary particles occurring in an energy range up to several hundreds GeV. Extending QFT beyond this range needs
