Lowest Landau level theory of the bosonic Jain states

  title={Lowest Landau level theory of the bosonic Jain states},
  author={Hart Goldman and T. Senthil},
Quantum Hall systems offer the most familiar setting where strong inter-particle interactions combine with the topology of single particle states to yield novel phenomena. Despite our mature understanding of these systems, an open challenge has been to to develop a microscopic theory capturing both their universal and non-universal properties, when the Hamiltonian is restricted to the non-commutative space of the lowest Landau level. Here we develop such a theory for the Jain sequence of…

Noncommutative gauge symmetry in the fractional quantum Hall effect
We show that a system of particles on the lowest Landau level can be coupled to a probe U(1) gauge field Aμ in such a way that the theory is invariant under a noncommutative U(1) gauge symmetry.


Lowest-Landau-level theory of the quantum Hall effect: The Fermi-liquid-like state of bosons at filling factor one
A theory for a Fermi-liquid-like state in a system of charged bosons at filling factor 1 is developed, working in the lowest Landau level. The approach is based on a representation of the problem as
Evolution between quantum Hall and conducting phases: simple models and some results
Quantum many particle systems in which the kinetic energy, strong correlations, and band topology are all important pose an interesting and topical challenge. Here we introduce and study particularly

It is shown that the problem of interacting electrons moving on a plane in the presence of an external magnetic field is equivalent to a family of systems of fermions bound to an even number of fluxes described by a Chern-Simons gauge field.
Charge and current in the quantum Hall matrix model
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
Non-Abelian adiabatic statistics and Hall viscosity in quantum Hall states and p(x) + ip(y) paired superfluids
Many trial wave functions for fractional quantum Hall states in a single Landau level are given by functions called conformal blocks, taken from some conformal field theory. Also, wave functions for
The Half-Full Landau Level
At even-denominator Landau level filling fractions, such as ν = 1/2, the ground state, in most cases, has no energy gap, and there is no quantized plateau in the Hall conductance. Nevertheless, the
Quantum Hall fractions for spinless bosons
We study the quantum Hall phases that appear in the fast-rotation limit for Bose-Einstein condensates of spinless bosonic atoms. We use exact diagonalization in a spherical geometry to obtain
Quantum Hall Physics Equals Noncommutative Field Theory
In this note, we study a matrix-regularized version of non-commutative U(1) ChernSimons theory proposed recently by Polychronakos. We determine a complete minimal basis of exact wavefunctions for the
Hamiltonian theories of the fractional quantum Hall effect
This paper reviews progress on the fractional quantum Hall effect (FQHE) based on what we term Hamiltonian theories, i.e., theories that proceed from the microscopic electronic Hamiltonian to the
Dirac composite fermions and emergent reflection symmetry about even-denominator filling fractions
Motivated by the appearance of a `reflection symmetry' in transport experiments and the absence of statistical periodicity in relativistic quantum field theories, we propose a series of relativistic
