"Quantum Hall Hierarchies from Conformal Field Theory"
Hans Hansson (Stockholm U.)

We have developed conformal field theory techniques to construct explicit representative wave functions for the full hierarchy of spin-polarized Abelian quantum Hall states, as well asseveral familes of non-Abelian states. In this talk I will explain the physical motivation behind our construction and present typical examples.
