The Fractional Quantum Hall Effect: Properties of an Incompressible Quantum Fluid

Overview

There have been tremendous theoretical and experimental developments in recent years in the field of the fractional quantum Hall effect. The Fractional Quantum Hall Effect presents a general survey of most of the theoretical work and briefly reviews the experimental results on the excitation gap. Researchers, experimentalists and research students with a background in quantum mechanics and statistical physics should find this book useful.
