SU$(N)$ fractional quantum Hall effects in topological flat bands.

D. N. Sheng, Tian-Sheng Zeng

We study $N$-component interacting particles (hardcore bosons and fermions) loaded in topological lattice models with SU$(N)$-invariant interactions based on density matrix renormalization group method. By tuning the interplay of interspecies and intraspecies interactions, we demonstrate that a class of SU$(N)$ fractional quantum Hall states can emerge at fractional filling factors $\nu=N/(N+1)$ for bosons ($\nu=N/(2N+1)$ for fermions) in the lowest Chern band, characterized by the nontrivial fractional Hall responses and the fractional charge pumping. Moreover, we establish a topological characterization based on the $\mathbf{K}$ matrix, and discuss the close relationship to the fractional quantum Hall physics in topological flat bands with Chern number $N$.
