When the effective filling factor of composite fermions is an integer, the residual interaction between them can often be neglected because the ground state of the non-interacting model is unique and incompressible. However, at non-integer composite fermion (CF) filling factors the ground state of composite fermions is enormously degenerate if the interaction between them is neglected, and consideration of the inter composite fermion interaction is necessary for determining the true ground state. In this article, we summarize certain results regarding what new states the inter composite fermion interaction can possibly produce. More details can be found in Refs.  and .
