# Interactions, localization, and the integer quantum Hall effect.

@article{Yang1995InteractionsLA, title={Interactions, localization, and the integer quantum Hall effect.}, author={Yang and Macdonald and Huckestein}, journal={Physical review letters}, year={1995}, volume={74 16}, pages={ 3229-3232 } }

We report on numerical studies of the influence of Coulomb interactions on the localization of electronic wave functions in a strong magnetic field. Interactions are treated in the Hartree-Fock approximation. Localization properties are studied both by evaluating participation ratios of Hartree-Fock eigenfunctions and by studying the boundary-condition dependence of Hartree-Fock eigenvalues. We find that interactions have no effect on the critical exponent characterizing the diverging…
