A two-dimensional electron system in an external magnetic field, with Landau-level filling factor \ensuremath{\nu}=1/2, can be transformed to a mathematically equivalent system of fermions interacting with a Chern-Simons gauge field such that the average effective magnetic field acting on the fermions is zero. If one ignores fluctuations in the gauge field, this implies that for a system with no impurity scattering, there should be a well-defined Fermi surface for the fermions. When gauge… 
Fluctuations and magnetoresistance oscillations near the half-filled Landau level
We study theoretically the magnetoresistance oscillations near a half-filled lowest Landau level ($\ensuremath{\nu}=1/2$) that result from the presence of a periodic one-dimensional electrostatic
The half-filled Landau level: The case for Dirac composite fermions
Density matrix renormalization group calculations show that particle-hole symmetry is preserved in a half-filled Landau level, and observes the suppression of 2kF backscattering, a characteristic of Dirac particles, which is relevant to two-dimensional electron gases in the quantum Hall regime.
Metallic phase in a two-dimensional disordered Fermi system with singular interactions
We consider a disordered system of gapless fermions interacting with a singular transverse (2+1)-dimensional gauge-field. We study quantum corrections to fermion conductivity and show that they are
Effective mass of composite fermions and the energy gaps of quantum Hall states
The effective mass of the quasi-particles in the fermion-Chern-Simons description of the quantum Hall state at half-filling is computed for electron-electron interactions $V(r)\sim r^{x-2}$, for
Fermi Surfaces of Composite Fermions
The fractional quantum Hall (FQH) effect was discovered in two-dimensional electron systems subject to a large perpendicular magnetic field nearly four decades ago. It helped launch the field of
Fermions out of dipolar bosons in the lowest Landau level
In the limit of very fast rotation atomic Bose-Einstein condensates may reside entirely in the lowest two-dimensional Landau level (LLL). For small enough filling factor of the LLL, one may have
Towards a Fermi liquid theory of the state: magnetized composite fermions
The fermionic Chern - Simons approach has had remarkable success in the description of quantum Hall states at even-denominator filling fractions . In this paper we review a number of recent works
