On the oscillator realization of conformal U(2, 2) quantum particles and their particlehole coherent states
Abstract
We revise the unireps. of U(2, 2) describing conformal particles with continuous mass spectrum from a manybody perspective, which shows massive conformal particles as compounds of two correlated massless particles. The statistics of the compound (boson/fermion) depends on the helicity h of the massless components (integer/halfinteger). Coherent states (CS) of particlehole pairs (“excitons”) are also explicitly constructed as the exponential action of exciton (noncanonical) creation operators on the ground state of unpaired particles. These CS are labeled by points Z (2×2 complex matrices) on the CartanBergman domain D₄=U(2,2)/U(2)², and constitute a generalized (matrix) version of Perelomov U(1, 1) coherent states labeled by points z on the unit disk D₁=U(1,1)/U(1)². First, we follow a geometric approach to the construction of CS, orthonormal basis, U(2, 2) generators and their matrix elements and symbols in the reproducing kernel Hilbert space H{sub λ}(D₄) of analytic squareintegrable holomorphic functions on D₄, which carries a unitary irreducible representation of U(2, 2) with index λϵN (the conformal or scale dimension). Then we introduce a manybody representation of the previous construction through an oscillator realization of the U(2, 2) Lie algebra generators in terms of eight boson operators with constraints. This particle picture allows us for a physicalmore »

The coherent states for a quantum spin 1/2 particle on a sphere are introduced. These states are marked with points of the classical phase space, that is the position and the angular momentum of a particle.

Exact realization of integer and fractional quantum Hall phases in U(1)×U(1) models in (2+1)d
In this work we present a set of microscopic U(1)×U(1) models which realize insulating phases with a quantized Hall conductivity σ{sub xy}. The models are defined in terms of physical degrees of freedom, and can be realized by local Hamiltonians. For one set of these models, we find that σ{sub xy} is quantized to be an even integer. The origin of this effect is a condensation of objects made up of bosons of one species bound to a single vortex of the other species. For other models, the Hall conductivity can be quantized as a rational number times two. Formore » 
On the bosonquasifermion realization of the particlehole SO(2. cap omega. +1) algebra
The shellmodel algebra SO(2..cap omega..+1) generated by all bilinear and linear combinations of fermion creation and annihilation operators acting on a Fock space of ..cap omega.. orbitals may be mapped into an ''ideal space'' in which particlehole pairs are described by boson operators, while excess particles or holes are described by fermionlike degrees of freedom called ''quasifermions.'' After a review of the derivation of the nonunitary generalized Dyson realization, it is shown how this realization can be unitarized in a very simple way with the help of a recently developed technique that utilizes the Casimir invariants of a ''core subalgebra.'' 
Quantum beats from the coherent interaction of hole states with surface state in nearsurface quantum well
We report tunneling assisted beating of carriers in a nearsurface single GaAsP/AlGaAs quantum well using transient reflectivity measurement. The observed damped oscillating signal has a period of 120 ± 6 fs which corresponds to the energy difference between lh1 and hh2 hole states in the quantum well. Comparing the transient reflectivity signal at different photon energies and with a buried quantum well sample, we show that the beating is caused by the coherent coupling between surface state and the hole states (lh1 and hh2) in the nearsurface quantum well. The dependence of decay of coherence of these tunneling carriers on the excitationmore »
