"The Bulk-Edge Correspondence in Abelian Fractional Quantum Hall States"

Michael Mulligan , Station Q/UCSB
[Host: Paul Fendley]
It is commonly assumed that a given bulk quantum Hall state and its low energy edge excitations are in one-to-one correspondence. In this talk, I will explain, contrary to this conventional wisdom, how a given bulk state may host multiple, distinct edge phases. I will describe a few surprising examples of this phenomenon and discuss experimental consequences.
