We study vortex-like solutions to the Lifshitz-Chern-Simons theory. Wefind that such solutions exists and have a logarithmically divergent energy, whichsuggests that a Kostelitz-Thouless transition may occur, in which voxtex…

The Chern-Simons-Landau-Ginzburg theory of the fractional quantum Hall effect
This paper gives a systematic review of a field theoretical approach to the fractional quantum Hall effect (FQHE) that has been developed in the past few years. We first illustrate some simple
Renormalization, vortices, and symmetry-breaking perturbations in the two-dimensional planar model
The classical planar Heisenberg model is studied at low temperatures by means of renormalization theory and a series of exact transformations. A numerical study of the Migdal recursion relation
Bipartite Rokhsar-Kivelson points and Cantor deconfinement
Quantum dimer models on bipartite lattices exhibit Rokhsar-Kivelson (RK) points with exactly known critical ground states and deconfined spinons. We examine generic, weak, perturbations around these
Isotropic to anisotropic transition in a fractional quantum Hall state
We study an Abelian gauge theory in $2+1$ dimensions which has surprising theoretical and phenomenological features. The theory has a vanishing coefficient for the square of the electric field

Quantum Criticality and Deconfinement in Phase Transitions Between Valence Bond Solids
We consider spin-half quantum antiferromagnets in two spatial dimensions in the quantum limit, where the spins are in a valence bond solid (VBS) phase. The transition between two such VBS phases is
Effective-field-theory model for the fractional quantum Hall effect.
A field-theory model for the fractional quantum Hall effect and an approximate coarse-grained version of the same model are derived, and a Landau-Ginzburg theory similar to that of Girvin is constructed.

Finite temperature properties of quantum Lifshitz transitions between valence bond solid phases: An example of 'local' quantum criticality
We study the finite temperature properties of quantum magnets close to a continuous quantum phase transition between two distinct valence bond solid phases in two spatial dimension. Previous work has
