Regularity properties of bulk and edge current densities at positive temperature

  title={Regularity properties of bulk and edge current densities at positive temperature},
  author={Massimo Moscolari and Benjamin B St{\o}ttrup},
We consider magnetic Schrödinger operators describing a quantum Hall effect setup both in the plane and in the half-plane. First, we study the structure and smoothness of the operator range of various powers of the half-plane resolvent. Second, we provide a complete analysis of the diamagnetic current density at positive temperature: we prove that bulk and edge current densities are smooth functions and we show that the edge current density converges to the bulk current density faster than any… 


Edge Currents for Quantum Hall Systems, I. One-Edge, Unbounded Geometries
Devices exhibiting the integer quantum Hall effect can be modeled by one-electron Schrodinger operators describing the planar motion of an electron in a perpendicular, constant magnetic field, and
On the Extended Nature of Edge States of Quantum Hall Hamiltonians
Abstract. Properties of eigenstates of one-particle Quantum Hall Hamiltonians localized near the boundary of a two-dimensional electron gas – so-called edge states – are studied. For finite samples
Sharp trace asymptotics for a class of 2D-magnetic operators
In this paper we prove a two-term asymptotic formula for for the spectral counting function for a 2D magnetic Schr\"odinger operator on a domain (with Dirichlet boundary conditions) in a
Universal Edge Transport in Interacting Hall Systems
We study the edge transport properties of 2d interacting Hall systems, displaying single-mode chiral edge currents. For this class of many-body lattice models, including for instance the interacting
A quantization theorem for the edge currents is proven for discrete magnetic half-plane operators. Hence the edge channel number is a valid concept also in presence of a disordered potential. Under a
Propagating edge states for a magnetic Hamiltonian
We study the quantum mechanical motion of a charged particle moving in a half plane (x>0) subject to a uniform constant magnetic field B directed along the z-axis and to an arbitrary impurity
Equality of the Bulk and Edge Hall Conductances in a Mobility Gap
We consider the edge and bulk conductances for 2D quantum Hall systems in which the Fermi energy falls in a band where bulk states are localized. We show that the resulting quantities are equal, when
Multi-Channel Luttinger Liquids at the Edge of Quantum Hall Systems
We consider the edge transport properties of a generic class of interacting quantum Hall systems on a cylinder, in the infinite volume and zero temperature limit. We prove that the large-scale
Continuity Properties of Integral Kernels Associated with Schrödinger Operators on Manifolds
Abstract.For Schrödinger operators (including those with magnetic fields) with singular scalar potentials on manifolds of bounded geometry, we study continuity properties of some related integral
