Lectures on the Quantum Hall Effect
by David Tong
Publisher: University of Cambridge 2016
Number of pages: 234
The purpose of these lectures is to describe the basic theoretical structures underlying the rich and beautiful physics of the quantum Hall effect. The focus is on the interplay between microscopic wavefunctions, long-distance effective Chern-Simons theories, and the modes which live on the boundary.

This paper introduces one interpretation of quantum mechanics, a modern 'many-worlds' theory, from the perspective of quantum computation. Reasons for seeking to interpret quantum mechanics are discussed, then the specific theory is introduced.

This document is aimed at advanced students of physics who are familiar with the concepts and notations of quantum mechanics. It tries to bridge the gap between simple analytic calculations and complicated large-scale computations.

The following manuscript aims at an introduction to modern methods in relativistic quantum many-body theory. We introduce many-body techniques, using relativistic quantum field theory, emphasizing the so-called real-time formulation.

The failure of conventional quantum theory to recognize time as an observable and to admit time operators is addressed. We emphasize the role of the Hamiltonian as the generator of translations in time to construct time states.
