Title: Dynamics at the edge: charge fractionalization and nearstationary high energy state
Abstract: Ergodic manybody systems are expected to reach quasithermal equilibrium. Indeed, the energy distribution in quantum Hall edge modes with shortrange interactions generally relaxes to a nearthermal asymptotic state that can be described in terms of charge fractionalization. Surprisingly, highenergy electrons injected into a single edge mode with finite range interactions can stabilize over a long time scale in a state far from a thermal one: the resulting manybody state consists of rapidly decaying transient components followed by a nearsteadystate distribution with a peak near the injection energy.
