Fractional statistics - what is believed, what is known, what is
Thors Hans Hansson
I will survey the basics of (Abelian) fractional statistics and give the
arguments for why we believe that this fascinating phenomenon is present
in the Quantum Hall system. Then I will try to clear out what is
theoretically known for sure, what we have merely have good reasons to
believe. Finally I will shortly discuss some proposed experiments, and
one that has actually been carried out.
