Lattice spin models for nonAbelian chiral spin liquids
Here, we suggest a class of twodimensional lattice spin Hamiltonians describing nonAbelian SU(2) chiral spin liquids—spin analogs of fractional nonAbelian quantum Hall states—with gapped bulk and gapless chiral edge excitations described by the SU(2) _{n} WessZuminoNovikovWitten conformal field theory. The models are constructed from an array of generalized spinn/2 ladders with multispinexchange interactions which are coupled by isolated spins. Such models allow a controllable analytic treatment starting from the onedimensional limit and are characterized by a bulk gap and nonAbelian SU(2) _{n} gapless edge excitations.
