9789810200480: Fractional Statistics and Anyon Superconductivity (Series on Directions in Condensed Matter Physics (Hardcover))

The occurrence of fractional statistics has been discovered in more and more quantum field theory models, including some of the most geometrical and canonical ones. In a remarkable case, the fractional quantum statistics of quasiparticles in the fractional quantized Hall effect (FQHE) contributes to the understanding of states found there. Very recent work has indicated that similar possibilities arise for two-dimensional films in certain states of liquid 3He. Perhaps most exciting, although quite speculative at this moment, are recent attempts to apply fractional statistics to spin systems, and specifically to the behaviour of the 2-dimensional copper oxide layers that seem to be critical to the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity. It has recently been shown that fractional statistics automatically implies superconductivity of a qualitatively new kind. This collection of reprints with comprehensive commentary will serve as a valuable reference for those interested in the subject but have found it difficult to acquire basic knowledge, or a coherent view of the whole, due to the scattered literature available at present.

Review:

"This is the first book to appear on the topic of anyons in condensed matter physics, a topic now very fashionable because of its possible relevance to high-temperature superconductivity." Science (USA) "I recommend the book for students and specialists in condensed matter physics or theoretical physics, who might want to experience the freshness and novelty of the fractional statistics concepts." Physics World, 1991 "This timely volume offers a clear introduction to the rudiments of fractional statistics ... provides a thought-provoking refresher course in superfluidity and the quantum mechanics of indistinguishable particles." Physics Today, 1992
