Spectral sum rules and magnetoroton as emergent graviton in fractional quantum Hall effect
Abstract
Here, we consider gapped fractional quantum Hall states on the lowest Landau level when the Coulomb energy is much smaller than the cyclotron energy. We introduce two spectral densities, ρ_{T}(ω) and $$\bar{p}$$_{T}(ω), which are proportional to the probabilities of absorption of circularly polarized gravitons by the quantum Hall system. We prove three sum rules relating these spectral densities with the shift S, the q^{4} coefficient of the static structure factor S_{4}, and the highfrequency shear modulus of the ground state μ_{∞}, which is precisely defined. We confirm an inequality, first suggested by Haldane, that S_{4} is bounded from below by S–1/8. The Laughlin wavefunction saturates this bound, which we argue to imply that systems with ground state wavefunctions close to Laughlin’s absorb gravitons of predominantly one circular polarization. We consider a nonlinear model where the sum rules are saturated by a single magnetoroton mode. In this model, the magnetoroton arises from the mixing between oscillations of an internal metric and the hydrodynamic motion. Implications for experiments are briefly discussed.
