Integrability of the $\nu=4/3$ fractional quantum Hall edge states

  title={Integrability of the \$\nu=4/3\$ fractional quantum Hall edge states},
  author={Yichen Hu and Biao Lian},
We investigate the homogeneous chiral edge theory of the filling ν = 4 / 3 fractional quantum Hall state, which is parameterized by a Luttinger liquid velocity matrix and an electron tunneling amplitude (ignoring irrelevant terms). We identify two solvable cases: one case where the theory gives two free chiral boson modes, and the other case where the theory yields one free charge 2 e √ 3 chiral fermion and two free chiral Bogoliubov (Majorana) fermions. For generic parameters, the energy…

Interacting 1D Chiral Fermions with Pairing: Transition from Integrable to Chaotic
We study a generic one-dimensonal quantum model of two flavors (pseudospins) chiral complex fermions by exact diagonalization, which can have local interflavor interaction and superconducting

Under some general assumptions, the gapless excitations are shown to form a representation of the U(1) or SU(2) Kac-Moody algebras and to contribute to a specific heat with a linear tem- perature dependence.

It is found that, for strong confining potentials, the edge of a $\nu=1$ liquid is described by the $Z_F=1 $ Fermi Liquid theory, even in the presence of interactions, a consequence of the chiral nature of the system.
The chiral SYK model
Abstract We study the generalization of the Sachdev-Ye-Kitaev (SYK) model to a 1 + 1 dimensional chiral SYK model of N flavors of right-moving chiral Majorana fermions with all-to-all random

The edge excitations are shown to form a new kind of state which is called the Chiral Luttinger Liquid (´LL), which clearly demonstrate the non-Fermi liquid behaviors of the FQH states.
Exact quantum scars in the chiral nonlinear Luttinger liquid
While the chiral linear Luttinger liquid is integrable via bosonization, its non-linear counterpart does not admit for an analytic solution. In this work, we find a sub-extensive number of exact
Bulk-edge correspondence in (2 + 1)-dimensional Abelian topological phases
The same bulk two-dimensional topological phase can have multiple distinct, fully-chiral edge phases. We show that this can occur in the integer quantum Hall states at $\nu=8$ and 12, with
Interference of chiral Andreev edge states
The search for topological excitations such as Majorana fermions has spurred interest in the boundaries between distinct quantum states. Here, we explore an interface between two prototypical phases
Edge reconstruction in the fractional quantum Hall regime
The interplay of electron-electron interaction and confining potential can lead to the reconstruction of fractional quantum Hall edges. We have performed exact diagonalization studies on microscopic
Edge State Induced Andreev Oscillation in Quantum Anomalous Hall Insulator-Superconductor Junctions
We study the quantum Andreev oscillation induced by interference of the edge chiral Majorana fermions in junctions made of quantum anomalous Hall (QAH) insulators and superconductors (SCs). We show
