Modular Invariants in the Fractional Quantum Hall Effect

Abstract

We investigate the modular properties of the characters which appear in the partition functions of nonabelian fractional quantum Hall states. We first give the annulus partition function for nonabelian FQH states formed by spinon and holon (spinonholon state). The degrees of freedom of spin are described by the SU(2) Kac-Moody algebra at level k. The… (More)
