    Remarks on Finite W Algebras

    Get PDF
    The property of some finite W algebras to be the commutant of a particular subalgebra of a simple Lie algebra G is used to construct realizations of G. When G=so(4,2), unitary representations of the conformal and Poincare algebras are recognized in this approach, which can be compared to the usual induced representation technique. When G=sp(2,R) or sp(4,R), the anyonic parameter can be seen as the eigenvalue of a W generator in such W representations of G. The generalization of such properties to the affine case is also discussed in the conclusion, where an alternative of the Wakimoto construction for sl(2) level k is briefly presented. This mini review is based on invited talks presented by P. Sorba at the ``Vth International Colloquium on Quantum Groups and Integrable Systems'', Prague (Czech Republic), June 1996; ``Extended and Quantum Algebras and their Applications to Physics'', Tianjin (China), August 1996; ``Selected Topics of Theoretical and Modern Mathematical Physics'', Tbilisi (Georgia), September 1996; to be published in the Proceedings.Comment: LaTeX, 16 pages, references adde

    Field theory of anyons in the lowest Landau level

    Full text link
    We construct a field theory for anyons in the lowest Landau level starting from the NN-particle description, and discuss the connection to the full field theory of anyons defined using a statistical gauge potential. The theory is transformed to free form, with the fields defined on the circle and satisfying modified commutation relations. The Fock space of the anyons is discussed, and the theory is related to that of edge excitations of an anyon droplet in a harmonic oscillator well.Comment: 27 pages (incl. 2 figs.) in standard Latex.

    Energy Spectrum of Anyons in a Magnetic Field

    Full text link
    For the many-anyon system in external magnetic field, we derive the energy spectrum as an exact solution of the quantum eigenvalue problem with particular topological constraints. Our results agree with the numerical spectra recently obtained for the 3- and the 4-anyon systems.Comment: 11 pages in Plain LaTeX (plus 4 figures available on request), DFPD 92/TH/4

    Charge and Statistics of Quantum Hall Quasi-Particles. A numerical study of mean values and fluctuations

    Full text link
    We present Monte Carlo studies of charge expectation values and charge fluctuations for quasi-particles in the quantum Hall system. We have studied the Laughlin wave functions for quasi-hole and quasi-electron, and also Jain's definition of the quasi-electron wave function. The considered systems consist of from 50 to 200 electrons, and the filling fraction is 1/3. For all quasi-particles our calculations reproduce well the expected values of charge; -1/3 times the electron charge for the quasi-hole, and 1/3 for the quasi-electron. Regarding fluctuations in the charge, our results for the quasi-hole and Jain quasi-electron are consistent with the expected value zero in the bulk of the system, but for the Laughlin quasi-electron we find small, but significant, deviations from zero throughout the whole electron droplet. We also present Berry phase calculations of charge and statistics parameter for the Jain quasi-electron, calculations which supplement earlier studies for the Laughlin quasi-particles. We find that the statistics parameter is more well behaved for the Jain quasi-electron than it is for the Laughlin quasi-electron.Comment: 39 pages, 27 figure

    Finite Chern-Simons matrix model - algebraic approach

    Full text link
    We analyze the algebra of observables and the physical Fock space of the finite Chern-Simons matrix model. We observe that the minimal algebra of observables acting on that Fock space is identical to that of the Calogero model. Our main result is the identification of the states in the l-th tower of the Chern-Simons matrix model Fock space and the states of the Calogero model with the interaction parameter nu=l+1. We describe quasiparticle and quasihole states in the both models in terms of Schur functions, and discuss some nontrivial consequences of our algebraic approach.Comment: 12pages, jhep cls, minor correction

    Haldane exclusion statistics and second virial coefficient

    Full text link
    We show that Haldanes new definition of statistics, when generalised to infinite dimensional Hilbert spaces, is equal to the high temperature limit of the second virial coefficient. We thus show that this exclusion statistics parameter, g , of anyons is non-trivial and is completely determined by its exchange statistics parameter α\alpha. We also compute g for quasiparticles in the Luttinger model and show that it is equal to α\alpha.Comment: 11 pages, REVTEX 3.

    Exact Multiplicities in the Three-Anyon Spectrum

    Full text link
    Using the symmetry properties of the three-anyon spectrum, we obtain exactly the multiplicities of states with given energy and angular momentum. The results are shown to be in agreement with the proper quantum mechanical and semiclassical considerations, and the unexplained points are indicated.Comment: 16 pages plus 3 postscript figures, Kiev Institute for Theoretical Physics preprint ITP-93-32

    Statistical properties and statistical interaction for particles with spin: Hubbard model in one dimension and statistical spin liquid

    Full text link
    We derive the statistical distribution functions for the Hubbard chain with infinite Coulomb repulsion among particles and for the statistical spin liquid with an arbitrary magnitude of the local interaction in momentum space. Haldane's statistical interaction is derived from an exact solution for each of the two models. In the case of the Hubbard chain the charge (holon) and the spin (spinon) excitations decouple completely and are shown to behave statistically as fermions and bosons, respectively. In both cases the statistical interaction must contain several components, a rule for the particles with the internal symmetry.Comment: (RevTex, 16 pages, improved version

    Quantumgroups in the Higgs Phase

    Get PDF
    In the Higgs phase we may be left with a residual finite symmetry group H of the condensate. The topological interactions between the magnetic- and electric excitations in these so-called discrete H gauge theories are completely described by the Hopf algebra or quantumgroup D(H). In 2+1 dimensional space time we may add a Chern-Simons term to such a model. This deforms the underlying Hopf algebra D(H) into a quasi-Hopf algebra by means of a 3-cocycle H. Consequently, the finite number of physically inequivalent discrete H gauge theories obtained in this way are labelled by the elements of the cohomology group H^3(H,U(1)). We briefly review the above results in these notes. Special attention is given to the Coulomb screening mechanism operational in the Higgs phase. This mechanism screens the Coulomb interactions, but not the Aharonov-Bohm interactions.

    Dynamics of the Compact, Ferromagnetic \nu=1 Edge

    Full text link
    We consider the edge dynamics of a compact, fully spin polarized state at filling factor Μ=1\nu=1. We show that there are two sets of collective excitations localized near the edge: the much studied, gapless, edge magnetoplasmon but also an additional edge spin wave that splits off below the bulk spin wave continuum. We show that both of these excitations can soften at finite wave-vectors as the potential confining the system is softened, thereby leading to edge reconstruction by spin texture or charge density wave formation. We note that a commonly employed model of the edge confining potential is non-generic in that it systematically underestimates the texturing instability.Comment: 13 pages, 7 figures, Revte
