Local density approximation for the almost-bosonic anyon gas

Michele Correggi, Douglas Lundholm and Nicolas Rougerie

Vol. 10 (2017), No. 5, 1169–1200
Abstract

We study the minimizers of an energy functional with a self-consistent magnetic field, which describes a quantum gas of almost-bosonic anyons in the average-field approximation. For the homogeneous gas we prove the existence of the thermodynamic limit of the energy at fixed effective statistics parameter, and the independence of such a limit from the shape of the domain. This result is then used in a local density approximation to derive an effective Thomas–Fermi-like model for the trapped anyon gas in the limit of a large effective statistics parameter (i.e., “less-bosonic” anyons).
