Partons as unique ground states of quantum Hall parent Hamiltonians: The case of Fibonacci anyons

【Abstract】
We present microscopic, multiple Landau level, (frustration-free and positive semi-definite) parent Hamiltonians whose ground states, realizing different quantum Hall fluids, are parton-like and whose excitations display either Abelian or non-Abelian braiding statistics. We prove ground state energy monotonicity theorems for systems with different particle numbers, demonstrate S-duality in the case of toroidal geometry and establish an exact zero-energy mode counting. The emergent Entangled Pauli Principle, introduced in Phys. Rev. B 98, 161118(R) (2018) and which defines the "DNA" of the quantum Hall fluid, is behind the exact determination of the topological characteristics of the fluid, including charge and braiding statistics of excitations, and effective edge theory descriptions. When the closed-shell condition is satisfied, the densest (i.e., the highest density and lowest total angular momentum) zero-energy mode is a unique parton state. As a corollary, it follows that the Moore-Read Pfaffian and Read-Rezayi states (both of which may be expressed as linear combinations of parton-like states) cannot be densest ground states of two-body parent Hamiltonians. We conjecture, based on the algebra of polynomials in holomormorphic and anti-holomorphic complex variables, that parton-like states span the subspace of many-body wave functions with the two-body $M$-clustering property, that is, wave functions with $M$th-order coincidence plane zeroes. We illustrate our framework by presenting a parent Hamiltonian whose excitations are rigorously proven to be Fibonacci anyons and show how to extract the DNA of the fluid whose entanglement pattern manifests in the form of a matrix product state.
