An adiabatic approach put forward by Greiter and Wilczek interpolates between the integer quantum Hall effects of electrons and composite fermions by varying the statistical flux bound to electrons continuously from zero to an even integer number of flux quanta, such that the intermediate states represent anyons in an external magnetic field with the same “effective” integer filling factor. We consider such anyons on a torus, and we construct representative wave functions for their ground as well as excited states. These wave functions involve higher Landau levels in general, but can be explicitly projected into the lowest Landau level for many parameters. We calculate the variational energy gap between the first excited state and the ground state, and we find that it remains open as the statistical phase is varied. Finally, we obtain from these wave functions, both analytically and numerically, various topological quantities, such as the ground-state degeneracy, the Chern number, and the Hall viscosity.
