Svan Bachmann - University of British Columbia

will speak on:

Quantized quantum transport and Abelian anyons

I’ll discuss recent developments in the study of quantized quantum transport, focussing on the quantum Hall effect. Beyond presenting an index taking rational values, and which is the Hall conductance in the adapted setting, I will explain how the index is intimately paired with the existence of quasi-particle excitations having non-trivial braiding properties.
