The Quantum Hall Effect: Novel Excitations and Broken Symmetries
by Steven M. Girvin
Publisher: arXiv 1999
Number of pages: 124
These pedagogical lecture notes present a general introduction to most aspects of the integer and fractional quantum Hall effects. This is followed by an extensive discussion of quantum Hall ferromagnetism, both for spins in single-layer systems and "pseudospins" in double-layer systems. The effective field theories describing various broken symmetry states and "skyrmion" and "meron" spin textures are derived and discussed in some detail.

Nanomagnetism may be defined as the branch of magnetism dealing with low-dimension systems and/or systems with small dimensions. These notes are mainly devoted to magnetic ordering, magnetic domains, magnetization reversal, and more.
