The graphrepresentation approach to topological field theory in 2 + 1 dimensions
In this paper an alternative definition of topological quantum field theory in 2 + 1 dimensions is discussed. The fundamental objects in this approach are not gauge fields as in the usual approach, but nonlocal observables associated with graphs. The classical theory of graphs is defined by postulating a simple diagrammatic rule for computing the Poisson bracket of any two graphs. The theory is quantized by exhibiting a quantum deformation of the classical Poissonbracket algebra, which is realized as a commutator algebra on a Hilbert space of states. The wave functions in this graph representation approach are functionals on anmore » 
Theory of bandedge optical nonlinearities in typeI and typeII quantumwell structures
A theoretical analysis of the manybody effects in the bandedge absorption spectra of highly excited typeI and typeII semiconductor quantumwell structures is presented. The situation of a homogeneous electronhole plasma in a usual typeI structure is compared and contrasted to the situation in a typeII structure, where the electron and hole plasmas are spatially separated into adjacent layers. The plasma effects are determined through numerical solutions of a generalized Wannier equation, which accounts for dynamical exchange and screening effects as well as Pauli blocking. In the description of dynamical screening, an alternative to the socalled Shindo approximation is developed. Themore »
