Chern-Simons Gauge Theory and Spin-Statistics Connection in 2 Dimensional Quantum Mechanics

  • G. W. Semenoff
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 238)


It has been known for some time that the possibilities for quantum statistics in 1 and 2 space dimensions are more general than in the familiar 3 dimensional world. There has recently been much interest in the 2 dimensional case where, besides the usual Bosons and Fermions there can be particles with intermediate statistics.
