Title: The Supersymmetric Quantum Hall Effect

Location: Naustið, Endurmenntun.
Time: Tuesday, August 25, at 15:00-16:00.

Abstract:

I’ll describe the solution to a supersymmetric, but non-relativistic, gauge theory in d=2+1 dimensions. The ground states are given by the Laughlin wavefunctions describing the fractional quantum Hall effect. The model reveals explicit connections between different approaches to quantum Hall phenomenology.
