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.

By using the general concepts of special relativity and the requirements of quantum mechanics, Dirac equation is derived and studied. Only elementary knowledge of spin and rotations in quantum mechanics and standard linear algebra are required.

The quantum measurement problem: why a unique outcome is obtained in each individual experiment, is currently tackled by solving models. After an introduction, we review the models proposed. A flexible and realistic quantum model is introduced...

This text introduces quantum mechanics from a more abstract point of view than a first quantum mechanics course. Students will gain a deeper understanding of the structure of quantum mechanics and of some of its key points.
