About this book

The quantum Hall effects remains one of the most important subjects to have emerged in condensed matter physics over the past 20 years. The fractional quantum Hall effect, in particular, has opened up a new paradigm in the study of strongly correlated electrons, and it has been shown that new concepts, such as fractional statistics, anyon, chiral Luttinger liquid and composite particles, are realized in two-dimensional electron systems. This book explains the quantum Hall effects together with these new concepts starting from elementary quantum mechanics. Thus, graduate students can use this book to gain an overall understanding of these phenomena.

Reviews

From the reviews:

In this monograph Daijiro Yoshioka has done a marvelous job.

--The Physicist

"This book will provide a nice starting point for ideas that an experienced solid state physics educator may use for an in-depth introduction to the fundamentals of both the integral and fractional Quantum Hall effect. … this volume does provide a useful introduction to this exciting field in one rather small but excellently produced volume. Rather nicely, each chapter has a few exercises to challenge the reader." (Gary J. Long and Fernande Grandjean, Physicalia, Vol. 25 (3), 2003)

"In this monograph Daijiro Yoshioka has done a marvelous job. … he gives an excellent pedagogic description of both integral and fractional QHEs. … This book would be a good reference for a post-graduate course in Condensed Matter Physics. Those interested enough to learn the subject from scratch, are recommended to buy personal copies." (Mukunda Das, The Physicist, Vol. 39 (5), 2002)
