Speaker : Tobias Zingg (Nordita)
Abstract : Anyons are a special type of particle in 2+1 dimensions that can have fractional spin quantum number and have garnered substantial interest theoretically as well as experimentally. They however have a highly non-trivial configuration space of multiparticle states, compared to bosons or fermions, which often impedes a direct approach via quantum statistics, even in the most simple cases. Holography provides a way to evade some of these issues. Within this framework, I will formulate a general method to obtain an effective physical description of strongly correlated anyonic systems via an alternative quantization of asymptotic electromagnetic degrees of freedom in a gravitational dual, and demonstrate how this prescription can be employed to compute the equation of state and various transport coefficients.
