Abstract

In the standard hierarchical scheme the daughter state at each step results from the fractional quantum Hall effect of the quasiparticles of the parent state. In this paper a new possible approach for understanding the fractional quantum Hall effect is presented. It is proposed that the fractional quantum Hall effect of electrons can be physically understood as a manifestation of the integer quantum Hall effect of composite fermionic objects consisting of electrons bound to an even number of flux quanta.
