The Pseudopotential Description of the Fractional Quantum Hall Effect without Rotational Symmetry

Haldane pseudopotentials have played a key role in the study of the fractional quantum Hall (FQH) effect as they allow an arbitrary rotationally-invariant interaction to be expanded over projectors onto the two-particle eigenstates of relative angular momentum. Here we introduce a more general class of pseudopotentials that form a complete basis in the cases where rotational symmetry is explicitly broken, e.g., due to tilted magnetic field or tilted dipolar fermions. Similar to the standard isotropic pseudopotentials, the generalized pseudopotentials are also parametrized by a unimodular metric, which groups the effective interactions into equivalence classes, and is particularly useful in determining optimal model Hamiltonians of the anisotropic FQH fluids.
