Excellent notes on the Quantum Hall Effect

In the condensed matter theory group at UQ we regularly run reading groups, where we work through a book, review article, or some lecture notes. This is particularly important as our PhD students don't take any courses.

Currently we are working through some nice lecture notes on the Quantum Hall effect, written by David Tong. They are very accessible and clear, particularly in putting the QHE in the context of topology, edge states, Berry's phase, Chern insulators, TKNN, ...

On his website he also has lectures on a wide range of topics from kinetic theory to string theory.
