Hyperspherical Slater determinant approach to fewbody fractional quantum Hall states
Abstract
In a recent study (Daily et al., 2015), a hyperspherical approach has been developed to study fewbody fractional quantum Hall states. This method has been successfully applied to the exploration of few boson and fermion problems in the quantum Hall region, as well as the study of interLandau level collective excitations (Rittenhouse et al., 2016; Wooten et al., 2016). However, the hyperspherical method as it is normally implemented requires a subsidiary (anti)symmetrization process, which limits its computational effectiveness. The present work overcomes these difficulties and extends the power of this method by implementing a representation of the hyperspherical manybody basis space in terms of Slater determinants of single particle eigenfunctions. A clear connection between the hyperspherical representation and the conventional single particle picture is presented, along with a compact operator representation of the theoretical framework.  Highlights: • A hyperspherical method has been implemented to study the quantum Hall effect. • The hyperspherical manybody basis space is represented with Slater determinants. • Example numerical studies of the 4 and 8electron systems are presented.

We propose a realistic scheme to create motionally entangled states of a few bosonic atoms. It can experimentally be realized with a gas of ultracold bosonic atoms trapped in a deep optical lattice potential. By simultaneously deforming and rotating the trapping potential on each lattice site it is feasible to adiabatically create a variety of entangled states on each lattice well. We fully address the case of N=2 and 4 atoms per well and identify a sequence of fractional quantum Hall states: the Pfaffian state, the 1/2Laughlin quasiparticle, and the 1/2Laughlin state. Exact knowledge of the spectrum has allowed usmore »

{open_quote}{open_quote}Fermi liquid{close_quote}{close_quote} shell model approach to composite fermion excitation spectra in fractional quantum Hall states
Numerical results for the energy spectra of {ital N} electrons on a spherical surface are used as input data to determine the quasiparticle energies and the pairwise {open_quote}{open_quote}Fermi liquid{close_quote}{close_quote} interactions of composite fermion (CF) excitations in fractional quantum Hall systems. The quasiparticle energies and their interactions are then used to determine the energy spectra, {ital E} vs total angular momentum {ital L}, of states containing more than two quasiparticles. The qualitative agreement with the numerical results gives a remarkable new confirmation of the CF picture. {copyright} {ital 1996 The American Physical Society.} 
Bilayer quantum Hall phase transitions and the orbifold nonAbelian fractional quantum Hall states
We study continuous quantum phase transitions that can occur in bilayer fractional quantum Hall (FQH) systems as the interlayer tunneling and interlayer repulsion are tuned. We introduce a slaveparticle gauge theory description of a series of continuous transitions from the (ppq) Abelian bilayer states to a set of nonAbelian FQH states, which we dub orbifold FQH states, of which the Z{sub 4} parafermion (ReadRezayi) state is a special case. This provides an example in which Z{sub 2} electron fractionalization leads to nonAbelian topological phases. The naive ''ideal'' wave functions and ideal Hamiltonians associated with these orbifold states do not inmore »

A fast and efficient algorithm for Slater determinant updates in quantum Monte Carlo simulations
We present an efficient lowrank updating algorithm for updating the trial wave functions used in quantum Monte Carlo (QMC) simulations. The algorithm is based on lowrank updating of the Slater determinants. In particular, the computational complexity of the algorithm is O(kN) during the kth step compared to traditional algorithms that require O(N{sup 2}) computations, where N is the system size. For single determinant trial wave functions the new algorithm is faster than the traditional O(N{sup 2}) ShermanMorrison algorithm for up to O(N) updates. For multideterminant configurationinteractiontype trial wave functions of M+1 determinants, the new algorithm is significantly more efficient, savingmore »
